Answer: Bracken's Brown Beauty can reach between 30 and 50 feet tall so it has the potential to become substantially larger than Little Gem. One of Bracken's special qualities is its winter hardiness and that is not of special concern in your area, so if it were up to me I would probably use the Little Gem given your size limitations. It runs 20 to 25 feet tall and only 10 to 15 feet wide. The overall scale of the plant is also smaller, as it has smaller foliage as well.
