'Little Gem' is perfectly named! It adds all the charm of its cousin, the iconic southern magnolia, but doesn't need a lot of space. Gorgeous big creamy white flowers are lightly scented and the shiny deep green foliage makes it a lovely focal point in the smallest of gardens. This one is truly special!
Fabulous bloom with showy, deep magenta, orchid-shaped flowers from late fall through spring along the coast. A real stunner! Semi-evergreen, so there is always some foliage. Ideal ornamental, can reach 20' tall and wide at full maturity.
Glossy leaves, fragrant flowers and beautiful fruit - 'Eureka' is a classic! And did you know it's mandatory to have a lemon tree here in SoCal? : ) Eureka’ is ever-bearing - year-round fruit for cooking, cocktails, preserving [try it!] and giving away to happy visitors. Pretty much the perfect gift tree for anyone and any occasion.
Ahhh, the glorious crape myrtle! When nearly everything else has bloomed and faded, come August the crape myrtles spring to life. Dazzling shades of pink, fuchsia, lavender and white create a summery focal point. A marvelous way to celebrate August anniversaries and birthday and a good choice for memorial.
Can we have warm winters AND gorgeous fall color? Yes we can. The Chinese Pistache works well as a shade tree, and as a front or backyard focal point. After it is established, it handles drought well and will grow at a moderate rate to about 30' high and wide so it needs plenty of room. In winter, the leaves drop off and then you'll know spring is just around the corner.
