The October Magic Rose Camellia from the Southern Living Plant Collection creates an explosion of color during the fall and winter seasons. Small salmon-rose double flowers appear in clusters as other plants are just beginning to lose their leaves. The dark emerald green leaves provide an eye-catching, glossy background that contrasts elegantly with the rich magenta blooms. This evergreen has a dense, uniform habit that makes maintaining the October Magic Rose effortless. Camellias thrive in slightly acidic soil, and applying a slow-release granular fertilizer yearly will keep this plant vigorous and productive.
Space Your October Magic Rose Camellia 2-3 feet apart for a seamless planting. Otherwise, plant them 4+ feet apart to leave space between shrubs.

I love my new Camellia! The plant I received was larger than expected, and full of flower buds, that should open in October, as the October Magics usually bloom.
