|Design Ideas||This dwarf evergreen Magnolia is the dream tree for small gardens because it has so many applications. If kept clipped, it makes a lovely small standard or matched pair. As a matched pair, this Magnolia is particularly charming flanking a decorative gateway or piece of sculpture. Lovely lined up and evenly spaced in long, narrow formal beds surrounded by hedges or low-growing flowering shrubs. Small enough to grow in the side yard as a screen. Ideal for town houses and condominiums.|
|Companion Plants||Camellia (Camellia); Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Viburnum (Viburnum); Indian Hawthorn (Rhaphiolepis); Aucuba (Aucuba)|
|Care||Provide deep, nutrient-rich, acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce watering frequency; best with regular moisture, but will tolerate brief dry spells. Feed in early spring before new growth emerges.|
