#ProPlantTips for Care:

For the best results, site White Shi-Shi™ October Magic® Camellia where it can soak up at least four hours of sunlight daily. They won't do well in standing water, so mound up if your soil isn't well-drained. Get your Camellias established in well-drained, slightly acidic soil with regular moisture access over the first season or two, and even beginner-level gardeners should have many years of success!

Tolerant of periodic drought only after the roots are established, give supplemental water the first season and during long periods of dry weather. Finally, apply a layer of pine bark mulch over the top of the root system but never directly touching the stems. Fertilize with a good Acid Lovers formula in early spring, following directions for application rates and reapplication schedule.

Prune your Camellias after they flower and keep their interior free of leaf debris and dead/broken stems. Apply deer repellent on the day you plant and reapply according to the label directions, if they regularly visit your yard. This will train deer to avoid this plant entirely!

  • Grow in Part Shade or Afternoon Shade
  • Easy to Grow in Acidic, Well-Drained Soils
  • Displays Drought Tolerance Once Established
  • Prune After Flowering
