Product Overview

The Little Gem Magnolia is the perfect tree for your yard if you are seeking a smaller version of the evergreen magnolia without sacrificing any of the usual beauty. The Little Gem reaches only 20 ft. to 25 ft. with a spread of 8 ft. to 12 ft. and has a slow growth-rate, approximately 1-1/2 ft. per year. The Little Gem is recognized for its prolific flowering that lasts 6-months of the year, which lasts from May through October. It can flower in 2-year to 3-years. The Little Gem Magnolia produces large fragrant creamy white saucer shaped flowers that are 8 in. W. The Little Gem has beautiful shaped oblong leaves that are 5 in. to 7 in L and 2 in. W to 3 in. W. Little Gems have small leaves that are stiff and leathery with a deep glossy green color on top and a bronze-brown fuzzy underside. It still produces the characteristic fragrant, creamy white flowers and, in fact, tends to bloom more than the Bracken Brown Beauty. This magnolia makes a great specimen tree. Little Gem is hardy to 5°. USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10.

Better quality / price if purchased at store
You're better off being patient and purchasing in person. My local HD store was out, so I decided to order a couple of 3gal trees via mail. It took a bit longer than expected to arrive which probably stressed them out some. The quality / size was disappointing and did not look as pictured on their website. Luckily, I was able to return for a full refund (no questions asked). The local HD restocked the 7gal a week later for the same price.

    Arrived intact. Although FedEx delivered the box upside down. Good thing the soil was secured in plastic bag and did not fall out. Tree was planted and seems to still be alive. So far so good.

    verticillium wilt casualty
    I placed an online order that included free shipping (which was nice) since the nearby stores allegedly had none in stock. They arrived in a cardboard box via UPS. They appeared fine at first and well packaged. I planted them immediatley as I was waiting on them to complete a landscape project. After one day, all of the leaves became very wilted. The soil condition was optimal - it was fresh topsoil from a landscape yard. It has been 5 days now and they look like they are clinging on to dear life. I doubt they will survive and am preparing to return them for a refund.
