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.
