We planted this Little Gem Magnolia a couple of years ago. The first year it had a few blooms. But last year it had a lot.
We planted this one today. The nursery guy said it is a dwarf. I really thought all Little Gems were dwarfed (Little). But anyway, this one has ten buds on it! We planted it very near the bird feeder so the birds will have another one to perch in. Cardinals are lovely against the foliage.
