Magnolia grandiflora cultivar ID

7 years ago
last modified: 7 years ago

The property we bought came with this little tree, planted in a somewhat inappropriate spot (under the canopy of a mature honeylocust tree). Like many other things on the property, it was planted to look good at the time of sale without regard to its eventual size. Just wondering whether anybody has an idea which cultivar this might be. There's a visible graft union and it is about 5' tall. Hard to say what its growth rate is -- I've noticed leaf buds (which you can see in the 3rd picture) getting bigger over the past few months, but it hasn't done much else in the time we've been at this place . Based on searching the internet, I was wondering whether it might be a "Hasse" or a "Little Gem." We are in the SF Bay Area. Thanks for your help!
