Dwarf Southern Magnolia Little Gem
Unlike its larger cousins which can grow to 50 feet plus in height, Little Gem Magnolia is the dwarf in the family of Southern Magnolias, maturing to a height of little over 20 feet with a width of about 8 to 10 feet. This makes Little Gem an excellent choice for those who want the beauty of a Southern Magnolia but have limited space to work with. You might also be happy to know that Little Gem doesn't produce the large, grenade-size seedpods that larger varieties do, and that it starts blooming at 2 years old!
We suggest when planting your newly purchased Little Gem Magnolia plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Little Gem Magnolia to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally occuring beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardeners best friend and can help guarantee your success.
