Special Attributes
From the Southern Living Plant Collection, October Magic® Carpet Camellia is the most recent October Magic introduction. It's unique, heavily-frilled, double pink flowers against the glossy dark green foliage are simply stunning. This selection has a dense, bushy, spreading habit that lends itself well to mass or group planting, home foundation planting, or an underplanting for specimen trees.  

Landscape & Garden Uses

Because of it's spreading habit, growing 3 feet tall and 5+ feet wide, October Magic® Carpet Camellia is highly useful in mass or group plantings or to create a colorful underplanting for specimen or focal trees. It is perfect for use on smaller embankments to assist in erosion control and to beautify the space. Can be used for espalier: trained to grow flat against a open wall and in containers, planters and pots.. Find Your Zone >

Spacing:  3' for solid hedge; 6'+ for space between plants

Cultural Preferences

Camellia adapt well to various soil types however prefer a moist but well-drained acidic soil that is rich in organic matter. Constantly soggy soil is a slow killer. In general, Camellia grows and blooms better in partial shade with some shelter from the hot afternoon sun. Morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sunlight is perfect. All-day filtered sun is fine.
