White, pom pom like flowers on a fast growing, disease resistant plant

Camellia sasanqua October Magic® Snow

A vigorous, disease resistant grower that forms a tall rounded specimen when mature. Dark green, wavy leaves are distinguishable year round and provide a striking back-drop for the blooms.

The October Magic® Series of Camellia 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 usher in the camellia season in beautiful fashion. Graceful in form and one of the loveliest of autumn flowers, the soft fragrance of sasanquas conjure up memories of southern gardens amass with blooms. These new selections offer all of the nuances we’ve grown to love in sasanquas and then some. There’s a shape, size and color to fit any garden. Fully double white blooms appear as pom-poms with an extra layer of petals.  A fine line of rose pink dusting complements each bloom.
