This new variety is a smaller more dense version of the Little Gem Magnolia tree that features a very compact and naturally neat cone shaped habit.
Solid, glossy, dark green leaves have beautiful copper undersides and give depth to the overall density of the plant.
Sweet Spire has beautiful, fragrant, creamy white flowers during the Summer and Autumn period.
Extremely neat foliage and densely branched form make Sweet Spire a superior hedging and screening specimen. Perfect for large tubs or as a garden specimen and is unmatched as an evergreen screen. Plant as a specimen ‘stand alone’ feature small tree with a conical growth habit or plant in rows for an informal screen to 3m. It is best suited to informal screens rather than a clipped hedge due to its large rounded leathery leaves. Sweet Spire suits formal or modern gardens.
Prune in mid Spring to maintain desired shape and size. Frost tolerant, Sweet Spire is sun hardy and an excellent coastal plant. Low water use once established. Fertilize in Spring with a complete slow release fertilizer. Water well once planted. Maintain thorough watering during the warmer months.
