which magnolia?

dgs9r(z7 Baltimore, MD)April 24, 2009

Teddy Bear, or Little Gem, or Alta, or Edith Bogue?

Which ones have you grown successfully and would recommend?

Which one of these is narrower?

Are they all hardy in B'more City?


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

i have a little gem that is about 3 years old and is about 7-8' tall. this has been a great small tree that is completely trouble free. it is in a SE exposure so it gets lots of sun. beautiful small (compared to grandiflora) fragrant blooms. i babied it a bit for the first two years just giving it some extra water during long dry summer spells (which is most of our summers) but otherwise nothing special. i would highly recommend it.
