  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This great new cultivar produces big, goblet-shaped flowers in spring, but retains a compact, bushy habit, which makes it ideal for creating a big splash in a little space. The flowers have a light fragrance and the creamy-white petals are washed with raspberry-pink on their outer egdes, creating a lush two-tone effect, which fades over time. A magnificent addition to the shrub border, it will also make a beautiful specimen in the spring garden

  • Garden care: Plant in a sheltered spot, away from strong winds. Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in spring. Mulch in spring with manure or leafmould, especially on dry soils.

    Comments about Crocus Magnolia'Satisfaction':

    The colour is beautiful: white with bright raspberry outsides to the petals. This is a very attractive plant, and as it does not require acid soil, it can be grown anywhere. I have planted it in John Innes no 3 to give it the best start, in a sunny sheltered part of our small garden.

        Hello there
        This magnolia can grow to 2.5m tall x 2m wide eventually given the right conditions. Hope this helps.

        They will all be slightly different, but as a very general guide, I would expect these plants to be around 30 and 50cm.

        Hello there
        This Magnolia is a smaller, compact bushy form so it should be fine grown in a good sized pot with John Innes no 3 compost, and a layer of gravel or broken terracota pot pieces in the base for drainage.
        Plants is pots, - particulalry trees and large shrubs can dry out quickly, so it will need to be watered regularly and fed during the growing season.
        Hope this helps

    • Q:

      would this be suitable to grow a clematis through for later colour

        The Magnolia is a relatively small plant, so I would first wait until it is fully mature and has enough body to hold the extra weight of a climber. I would then be very selective about which climber you choose. Don't pick any Clematis that grows over 2.5m tall, and ideally it should belong to pruning group 3, so you can cut it back hard each year and remove all the old stems.
