Providing pure white blooms for your fall viewing pleasure, the October Magic Ivory Camellia from the Southern Living Plant Collection is a phenomenal early autumn bloomer. Producing double peony-type flowers with frilly petals, the Ivory breaks the mold when it comes to white camellia flowers. This evergreen has deep emerald green foliage that creates a phenomenal contrast with the creamy white flowers that appear in scores. Requiring little maintenance, the Ivory grows in a dense, uniform pattern that’s perfect for those looking for an effortlessly beautiful shrub. Camellias prefer slightly acidic soil, and, for the ideal health of your October Magic, fertilize once yearly with a slow-release balanced fertilizer.
Space Your October Magic Ivory Camellia 4 feet apart for a seamless planting. Otherwise, plant them 8+ feet apart to leave space between shrubs.

Thanks for having this in stock! Been looking for this type of ornamental camellia for awhile now. I was about to give up hope, since searching for some time. Glad to say, I recently purchased it & had it installed in my yard. So far seems to be hanging in there, tucked away in a semi-sheltered spot nearby a Gardenia. Carefully packaged & speedily shipped out to me. Can’t wait for it to continue to thrive & get my first blooms.

I purchased this plant in late April and planted it in an area receiving full morning sun and did not thrive. I moved it to an area receiving less sun and it continues to loose it’s leaves. I am very dissatisfied with this purchase.
