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 Camellia is a semi-dwarf that tends to a rounded, compact growth, making maintenance simple and infrequent. Maturing at 4-5′ H and 4-5′ W, this Sasanqua camellia is perfect for usage as an accent or hedge.
Camellias are a staple of southern gardens and this unique variety is perfect for anyone looking for that classic look with a bit of a twist.
October Magic Pink Perplexion Camellia Care
Camellias are happiest when they are planted in slightly acidic soil. Good drainage is crucial, as Camellias are susceptible to root rot. Supplementary watering is important during the first couple growing seasons, as this will help ensure the long-term health of your plant.
Fertilize with a slow-release balanced fertilizer for acidic plants in early spring.
