Southern Living October Magic Inspiration Camellia

The October Magic Inspiration Camellia from the Southern Living Plant Collection will continuously turn heads throughout the fall and winter seasons. The Inspiration produces large white double blooms with a frilly magenta edge that never ceases to impress. As other plants are winding down for the cooler months, the October Magic Camellia is gearing up for a display that will rival any spring landscape. This evergreen requires little maintenance as it grows in a nearly uniform column. Camellias traditionally perform best in well-drained slightly acidic soil, and for ideal plant health, apply a slow-release granular fertilizer in early spring.
