The brand new October Magic White Shi Shi Camellia from the Southern Living Plant Collection provides a unique twist on the classic Shi Shi Gashira Camellia! Gorgeous white, double blooms emerge from October to January. While the rest of your landscape is gearing down for a long, chilly winter, the White Shi Shi Camellia is just getting started!

 

Like it’s namesake, the Shi Shi Gashira Camellia, the October Magic White Shi Shi Camellia features a naturally compact growth habit.

 

This white bloom camellia maxes out at around 3-4′ H x 3-4′ W. Therefore, it’s perfect for a low-maintenance low hedge or border.

 

Try the White Shi Shi Camellia as an accent, container, mass planting, or slope planting.

 

This selection features a notable disease and pest resistance, as well as an impressive heat tolerance. Additionally, the October Magic White Shi Shi Camellia is more tolerant of clay soils than most varieties.

 

Sturdy branches and evergreen foliage make the White Shi Shi Camellia popular with local birds.

 

Plant 30-36″ apart for a seamless hedge of foliage. Space 48″ or more apart for space between plants.

 

October Magic White Shi Shi Camellia Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 7-9.

 

Prefers Full Sun to Partial Shade, around 4-6 hours of sun a day. Insufficient sunlight will result in reduced bloom and foliage potential. However, too much sun can cause undue stress to the October Magic White Shi Shi Camellia.

 

Grows best in slightly acidic soil with good drainage.

 

Water regularly until established, 2-3 times a week during the first growing season. Increase watering frequency in dry weather, and decrease frequency during heavy rain periods.

 

Fertilize with an acidic plant fertilizer in spring after the threat of frost has passed. Top dressing the soil underneath your October Magic White Shi Shi Camellia yearly with a couple inches of composted manure, such as Black Kow, will keep your soil rich and healthy.

 

If needed, prune in late winter before new foliage flushes out.

 

 

Spacing Recommendations for October Magic White Shi Shi Camellia

Plant your October Magic White Shi Shi Camellias 2 feet apart for a seamless planting. Space them 4+ feet apart for space between your shrubs.

    Waited for a year! So happy to find some on plantsbymail.com. Arrived extremely quickly, intact and healthy as can be. Loaded with buds and hoping for blooms this season. After this experience, I love plantsbymail…..it’s my new fav!

    So excited to receive my Shi Shi Camellias. They are super healthy and full of buds waiting to open. I can’t wait to see them in bloom very soon!

    Received my Shi Shi Camellia last October – it was healthy and well packed. It is now 6 months later and thriving! Wish it had a faster growth rate – will see how it grows once it starts to warm up!
