Buy Magnolia 'Satisfaction' magnolia: A beautiful new compact form

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • 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 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 edges, creating a lush two-tone effect, which fades over time. The intensity increases with the age of the plant. 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.

Magnolia Satisfaction


This arrived in good health and shape so I was pleased with it. The only downside is that it is a little small and doesn't grow quickly so needs time to grow, but it is healthy and shapely.




Beautiful plant


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.

How long will this magnolia take to flower?


Hello, They usually flower while quite young, so you may get a flower next year.

What is the expected final height and spread of this magnolia ?

Oldagit !!

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

Hello, What is the current size/height of this magnolia (not the final size on maturity)? Thank you.


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


Could this magnolia be grown in a pot?


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

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


Hello, 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.


Magnificent magnolias

Certain plants seem to capture the spirit of the moment and Magnolias take centre stage just when the garden is full of promise. But these plants have been on the planet since the age of the dinosaur when the earth existed as one large land mass. When con
