Deep glossy large leaves with a rich tan underside. Large white scented flowers. This evergreen tree is always so popular with our customers for hedges, feature planting, and in containers. Best in a sheltered spot where you can enjoy the fragrance.
DESCRIPTION: This is one of the most popular trees available in Australia. Little Gem is a dwarf magnolia variety, sought after for their shape, colour and rewarding flowers and not too big for your garden. The rich tan colour from the underside of the leaves is a feature as is its deep glossy green foliage not to mention the beautiful and fragrant large white flowers. More shade tolerant, fast-growing, and free-flowering than Teddy Bear. Teddy Bear has more rounded leaf tips and is slightly more orangey on the reverse. USES: Perfect specimen tree, also suited to large containers. PLANTING: Sunny or partly shaded position with morning or afternoon sun. Shelter from strong winds and exposed sites. CARE: Plant in well drained soil in a full sun to partly shaded position in the garden. Provide plenty of water during dry periods. Remove seed heads after flowering, this encourages dense new growth and more prolific flowering. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 4-5m H x 2-3m W. YOUR PLANTS: These plants are tube-stock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide
