The Q&A Archives: Magnolia

Question: How much will my Magnolia Tree, Saucer, tree grow each year it is 2-3 feet now how tall will it get, how many inches or feet will it grow each year ?

Answer: Saucer magnolia, Magnolia soulangiana, grows at a medium rate of say 10 to 15 feet in a ten year period. This will vary depending on the soil and moisture conditions as well as exposure to sun and wind and so on. It will do best in a moist, deep, rich soil that is somewhat acidic. According to Michael Dirr's "Manual of Woody Landscape Plants" this tree should mature in the 20 to 30 foot range with a width approximately the same as its height.
