More about Rose October Magic Camellia...
From the Southern Living Plant Collection, Rose October Magic Camellia is fast becoming a staple for professional landscape designers. Bright, truly double, salmon-rose flowers against the glossy dark green foliage are simply stunning. It has a dense, upright, nearly columnar form so lends itself well to narrow situations or smaller garden spaces.
Because of it's narrow habit, Rose October Magic Camellia is highly useful in narrow spaces in home foundation plantings or to create colorful, evergreen hedges or screens where space is limited. It is perfect for use as espalier: trained to grow flat against a open wall and in large containers
Camellias prefer a fertile, moist but well-drained, acidic soil. Constantly soggy soil is a slow killer. Your new camellia should not need regular watering after the first year unless there are extended periods of dry weather during summer. Camellias do best in partial shade or filtered sun. Avoid afternoon direct sun
