To baffle and amaze, the Southern Living Plant Collection presents the puzzling October Magic Pink Perplexion Camellia. Aptly named, the Perplexion’s blooms are as mystifying as they are beautiful. Their stunning pink double blooms prove difficult to pin down as one particular shade, however they resemble the blooms of the Camellia Japonica, Pink Perfection. While the warm weather plant life is settling down for the winter, the Pink Perplexion reignites the landscape creating a truly awe-inspiring display of luscious pink hues. This magnificent plant is a semi-dwarf that tends to a rounded, compact growth, making maintenance simple and infrequent. Camellias are happiest when they are planted in slightly acidic soil, and fertilized with a slow-release balanced fertilizer in early spring.
