Camellia sasanqua October Magic® Ivory

If Mine No Yuki has been your choice for white Camellias, Ivory will keep you from ever looking back. A creamy white, fully double peony-like flower with ruffled petals, similar in flower to ‘Mine-No-Yuki’ with more numerous petals. Ivory is a profuse bloomer with a much more manageable, very vigorous, upright habit, on a bushy and easy to produce plant.

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.

A soft, creamy white, fully double bloom with ruffled petals that really looks like a peony, similar to 'Mine-No-Yuki' , but with more petals and a much easier to pronounce and remember name!  Ivory matures to a very manageable 6-8' tall, making it perfect for smaller spaces and large containers.
