About October Magic® Inspiration™ Camellia (Sasanqua)

Let the October Magic Inspiration Camellia from the Southern Living Plant Collection energize your fall season garden or landscape!  While other plants are winding down for the cooler months, this Camellia is gearing up for a display that will rival any spring landscape. The Inspiration produces large white double-blooms with a frilly magenta edge. These blooms are plentiful and eye-catching, with a delicately refined beauty to them. Furthermore, as these blossoms age, the petals drop to the ground creating an attractive mat effect. This works particularly well when used to line driveways or pathways.

In addition to fantastic fall blooms, this pink and white blooming camellia features dark and glossy evergreen leaves with lightly serrated edges. This foliage is dense and provides consistent coverage all year long.

The October Magic Inspiration Camellia grows in a nearly uniform column, therefore it’s notably low-maintenance.

Reaches a mature size of 6-8′ H x 4-5′ W.

Use the October Magic Inspiration Camellia as an accent, hedge, specimen, mass planting, privacy plant, or container planting.

October Magic Inspiration Camellia Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 7-9, down to 0° F when fully established.

Plant in Full Sun to Part Shade. 4-6 hours of morning sun is ideal and will result in the highest bloom and foliage yields.

Water 2-3 times per week during the first growing season. During the second growing season, 1-2 waterings per week in average weather is usually sufficient.

The October Magic Inspiration Camellia prefers rich, slightly acidic soil with good drainage. Additionally, top-dress your soil with a couple inches of composted manure yearly to keep the soil full of organic matter.

Fertilize with a balanced acidic fertilizer or organic acidic fertilizer in early spring to promote overall plant health, growth, and bloom production.


Spacing Your October Magic Inspiration Camellia 

Space Your October Magic Inspiration Camellia 3 feet apart for a seamless planting. Otherwise, plant them 5+ feet apart to leave space between shrubs.
