Your Elizabeth Magnolia will mature into a pyramidal shape, reaching 25'-30' tall and 12'-15' wide. The Oriental type magnolias are much larger, reaching 40'-60' in height and 30'-40' in width at maturity. Give your Chinese magnolia plenty of elbow room and place your Elizabeth magnolia in the smaller site. Enjoy!
