The October Magic® series is taking the plant world by storm and receiving rave reviews from professionals and novices alike. You cannot live without Dawn! This compact beauty offers huge, rose-like blush pink blooms with none of the rose maintenance, thorns, or diseases! Did we mention it is evergreen too?!

In fall to early winter soft pink double blooms coat this pretty evergreen shrub. The flowers are huge and full and look very similar to an old fashioned rose. Plant your October Magic® Dawn™ Camellia nearby so you can enjoy the heavenly scent of the blooms. You'll love the show the hummingbirds and butterflies put on dancing around the scented delights as well! The shiny green foliage is a year-round treasure so no bare branches even in winter!


October Magic® Dawn™ Camellia is salt, drought, and heat tolerant as well as disease and deer resistant. They prefer to be grown in well drained soil that is fertile, moist, and acidic. Camellias grow best in partial sun to partial shade, but they can tolerate full sun exposure. The October Magic® Dawn™ Camellia is a low maintenance gem you need in your landscape! No matter how big or small your yard this showy pink autumn bloomer is certain to add just the right touch.

How To Care

Plant your camellia any time of the year taking care to avoid temperature extremes.  The October Magic series grows in planting zones 7 to 9.

While the October Magic series will tolerate full sun, planting in part sun to part shade will offer the best blooms.  Camellias enjoy fertile, acidic, moist, but well drained soil.  When newly planted, water deeply at least twice weekly.  Camellias prefer a moist soil, but water requirements do diminish as the plant ages and is able to shade its own roots.  Mulching is a great way to keep the roots cool, soil moist, and add nutrients to the soil.  Prune in late winter or early spring if needed to remove dead and dying branches or correct aesthetic or structural issues

The October Magic Series is disease and deer resistant, and heat, drought, and salt tolerant.

Great shipping speed. Don’t love that it’s pruned more like a tree than a bush. Plant seems healthy.

Great plant, bad delivery

Your customer service is excellent, but I order from you because I get one day shipping. FedEx is letting you down. Got it after two days at 9 p.m. camellia still was great. New growth instantly.

Excited for fall blooms!

Plants came beautifully and securely packaged to prevent jostling. Both came full and healthy with fertilized soil in the pots. I was extremely pleased with the ordering process, fast shipping, quality of plants received, and packaging. I am looking forward to watching them grow and hopefully bloom in the fall. Even without flowers, I love the leaves and shape of the shrub.
