Caring for October Magic Dawn Camellia

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.

Landscape ideas

There are many different ways to incorporate the October Magic® Dawn™ Camellia into your landscape. It can be used in a mixed border or for hedges or mass plantings. Try this gorgeous gem in a container for a distinctive look with loads of style.  At 4-6 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide at maturity these easy to grow camellia stay much more compact that other camellias. The October Magic® Dawn™ Camellia is a perfect focal plant in urban areas with small landscapes. But these exciting camellias shine anywhere!  And they are sure to transform your landscape in fall to winter when nothing else is blooming!
