Southern Living October Magic Orchid Camellia

One of the numerous fantastic Camellias from the Southern Living Plant Collection, the October Magic Orchid Camellia from the Southern Living Plant Collection produces beautiful blooms throughout fall and winter. These semi-double flowers are snowy white in the center and blush outward with orchid-pink highlights. Watch the October Magic Orchid knock out the muted landscape of the late seasons with its bounty of abundant and breathtaking blooms. These evergreens grow in a pillar-like pattern that lends itself to a pruning-free gardening experience. The Orchid, like most Camellias, prefers slightly acidic rich soil. Use a slow release granular fertilizer in early spring to keep this October Magic happy and full of blooms.
