Noteworthy Characteristics

No wonder this beautiful plant is one of the Southern Living Plant Collections finest. The 'Inpiration' October Magic Camellia is fast becoming a staple for professional landscape designers. Inspiration is one of our favoties in the October Magic® Series. In fall, it produces an abundance of gorgeous, large, flowers with white petals with a narrow, magenta-pink margin. The evergreen leaves of Inspiration are deep green through the year however new foliage in spring is maroon. Many camellias grow quite large over time however Inspiration reaches only 6 to 8 feet tall and will be 4 to 5 feet wide when mature, making them an excellent selection for smaller garden spaces.

Uses

Inspiration October Magic Camellia is perfect for use on the corners or as espalier (trained to grow against a wall) in foundation plantings, as a specimen or in small groupings in landscape beds, or as a colorful flowering hedge. 

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
