A Year of Gardens - Day 21




How about this for a creative hedge? These 'Little Gem' magnolias are pruned twice a year to keep them around 3-4 feet high around some of the homes at Watercolor Place in Florida. Plants are planted when they are 3 gallon size pot size.

Very pretty with the coppery leaves.

Wow, I've never seen a magnolia hedge. I almost like it better than in tree form.

I have wondered why more folks don't use this, especially for larger hedges. It is labor intensive compared to planting something that stays shorter but what a lovely option!
