Caring for October Magic Rose Camellia

Plant this Camellia sasanqua any time of the year taking care to avoid temperature extremes. October Magic Camellias grows in planting zones 7 to 9.

While the October Magic Camellia 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 protected, 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. Feed in spring with a balanced slow release fertilizer.

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

Landscape ideas

There are many different ways to incorporate the versatile October Magic Rose Camellia into your landscape. It can be used in a mixed bed, as a unique privacy hedge or group planting. Try this gorgeous evergreen bush in a container for a distinctive look with loads of style. Plant 2 to frame your entryway. At 6 to 8 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide at maturity this low maintenance plant is more columnar than traditional camellias offering a distinctive look. The October Magic Rose is a perfect focal plant in urban settings with small yards. But this exciting dwarf camellia shines anywhere! And they are sure to transform your landscape in fall to winter when nothing else is blooming! Plant 2 to 3 feet apart on center for a flowering privacy screen.
