Little Gem Magnolia Tree
This is the first of two Little Gem magnolia trees that we have in our yard. This one always reminds me of 9/11. We planted it here by the bluebird house just two days before 9/11 occurred in 2001. If you have a small yard then a Little Gem is the magnolia tree to select. It reaches just to 30 feet with a 8 feet spread when fully grown while a regular magnolia tree can get ginormous at 100 feet with a 50 feet spread. It may be little but it smells like a big magnolia tree. Heavenly.
