USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-9b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Camellia is not winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

October Magic® Ruby is fast becoming a staple for homeowners and professional landscape designers alike. It's smaller, yet elegant stature and gorgeous fully double, ruby red flowers are simply hard to resist. The flowers stand out remarkably well against the glossy, dark olive green foliage. This selection has a compact, lower, slightly open mounding form so lends itself well to smaller garden spaces. 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing only 3 to 4 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide with a lower mounding form October Magic® Rose Camellia is perfect for smaller garden spaces or those spots that call for a smaller plant. It is ideal for use as an accent, in home foundation plantings, or as a hedge or background plant or in groupings in landscape and woodland area garden. October Magic Rose combines well with Azaleas, Rhododendron, Mahonia, Aucuba, Pieris, Winter Daphne, Hosta Lillies, Ferns and a host of other beautiful shade to part shade plants that belong in the woodland or woodland border garden. Great for cottage gardens and cut flower gardens. Also suitable for containers that can be overwintered indoors for those who live and garden above USDA Zone 7a, where not winter hardy. Find Your Zone >

Spacing:  3-4' for solid hedge; 6'+ for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Camellia adapt well to various soil types. They prefer a moist but well-drained acidic soil that is rich in organic matter. Constantly soggy soil is a slow killer. In general, Camellias grow and bloom their best 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. Late evening sun is fine.
