October Magic® Camellias
Camellia sasanqua is a fall-blooming species. Some of these new selections have proven hardy in USDA Zone 6, but we are saying zone 7 to be safe. As summer fades and the nights begin to cool, the October Magic™ Series ushers in the camellia season in beautiful fashion. Developed by breeder Bobby Green in Mobile, Alabama, this series offers graceful, yet much more manageable forms and one of the loveliest autumn flowers. The soft fragrance of C. sasanqua conjures up memories of southern gardens amassing with blooms.
These new selections have all of the nuances we’ve grown to love in C. sasanqua and then some. There’s a shape, size, and color to fit any garden.
