The October Magic Ruby Camellia is a breakthrough in camellias, featuring bright red double flowers for months over fall and early winter, on a small bush that fits into today’s smaller gardens, into those small spots in any garden, or in pots and planters. This evergreen bush has handsome, glossy, dark-green leaves, and in fall through into early winter it bursts into bloom with 2 to 3-inch flowers of many petals, in a rich ‘Christmas’ red color. These are born in profusion, even on very young plants, and as the buds open in succession, the blooming just goes on and on. This bush will stay about 4 feet tall, and a little wider, so it doesn’t take up lots of space, but it delivers lots of colorful beauty, exactly when you need it most.

  • Gorgeous rich red double blooms all through fall
  • broad and low, for smaller spaces and gardens
  • beautiful evergreen glossy foliage
  • Ideal size for pots, planters and sun-rooms
  • Vigorous, tough and reliable

The October Magic Ruby Camellia grows best in partial shade, either as morning sun and afternoon shade, the shade from a north-facing wall, or in the dappled shade beneath deciduous trees. It should be grown in moist, well-drained soil enriched with organic material, and the soil should have a pH between 5.5 and 6.5. If you don’t have suitable soil, this is not a problem, as this compact plant grows very well in a pot, using potting mixture for acid-loving plants. Feed as recommended with a liquid camellia fertilizer. This plant has no significant pests or diseases and it is easy to grow, vigorous, and a reliable bloomer from an early age.
