Additional Information About Black Magic Camellia Japonica

Camellia Japonica 'Black Magic' is a moderate growing shrub that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 7A through 9B. It matures to an average height of 8 feet to 12 feet and an average width of 6 feet to 10 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sun and grows best when planted in sand, loam, clay or silt soil that is well drained. In the spring and winter Black Magic Camellia produces red and scarlet flowers. The foliage is dark green in color. It attracts visual attention and is resistant to drought and heat.

Black Magic Camellia can be useful in the landscape along woodland borders, as a buffer or screen, in containers or planters, as a background, in shrub borders, around decks, swimming pools, and other outdoor living areas, as an accent, under a shade tree, as a focal point or in landscape beds or islands and also in theme gardens, cottage gardens or shade gardens.

Noteworthy Characteristics

You almost have to see it to believe it. The petals of Black Magic look like they are carved out of dark red candle wax, they are so glossy. The leaves have an interesting, serrated, holly-look. We can't grow enough of these to meet demand!

Uses

Black Magic camellia is useful to create colorful, evergreen hedges or screens. It can also be "limbed up" to form an attractive, small, evergreen tree that can be useful as a focal point specimen. It is perfect for use as espalier: trained to grow flat against a large, open wall.

Culture

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
