Evergreen magnolias are the queens of flowering trees. We choose the most beautiful and at the same time hardiest varieties. The following variety was developed by Warren Steed in North Carolina, USA.
How strange to combine ‘grandi’ and ‘little’ in one name. Well, in case of this gorgeousness we do not care a bit. This selection is a special variety with reduced size of everything: overall size, leaves and flowers. On the other hand there is much more of everything. The glossy, leathery leaves are numerous, making the plant very dense. They are deep green with distinct rusty underneath. The amount of creamy white, fragrant flowers is unique. They keep popping up all summer until the last warm and sunny days of autumn. We recommend covering it with fleece on the coldest days of winter, and in periods of strong sunlight and/or cutting wind in combination with temperatures below zero (especially in early spring). Find it a protected location with plenty of direct sunlight, covered from cutting winds. It needs slightly acidic soil, very rich in humus, moist but permeable. In winter provide extra watering in frost-free periods.
