Camellia sasanqua October Magic® Carpet

A lower, spreading selection with ruffled, pink anemone petals surrounding a center of bright yellow stamens

As captivating as a golden-haired prima ballerina swirling across the autumn stage in her pink tutu, the ruffled, crepe paper-like flowers of ‘Carpet’ will continue to dance in your memory long after they leave the stage. With its bushy, spreading habit, this new introduction to the growing list of October Magic® Camellias, offers an adaptability in the landscape that larger selections cannot, making it the ideal choice for urban settings and smaller gardens. Mix Carpet with spring and summer flowering perennials like salvias, coreopsis and coneflowers for a full season of flowers.
