Black Magic Camellia is a tall evergreen shrub with an upright, spreading habit and large glossy toothed leaves that stay dark green year-round.  The large glossy deep red flowers with yellow-tipped stamen gain a black veining around the petal edges and bloom from late winter into early spring attracting butterflies.  Best blooms occur in partial sun and acidic, well-drained soil.

MAINTENANCE NEEDS: Medium maintenance. Too much water retention can increase susceptibility to fungal diseases, including root rot, black mold, blight, canker, anthracnose, and leaf spots.  Watch for aphids and spider mites.   Yellowing leaves indicate acidity too low. Fertilize monthly in spring and summer. If desired, remove all but one bud from each cluster to increase the size of the flower. Prune immediately after flowering.
