The Q&A Archives: Southern Dwarf Magnolia planting

Question: I have three Southern Dwarf Magnolias that I am planting in my very triangular shaped small yard for privacy from the other house. How far apart should I plant them? Thank you.

Answer: Your dwarf magnolia trees will grow 10-15' wide at maturity so you'll want to provide enough room for each to grow without crowding. I'd plant them at least 7' - 10' apart. The canopies will grow close, but will not entertwine.

Best wishes with your new trees!
