Black Magic

Black Magic was developed by Nuccio’s Nurseries in Altadena, California. It is an extraordinary camellia with very dark glossy red waxy type petals. Unusual holly-like foliage. It blooms late season.

Camellias younger than 3 years old usually don’t have many buds.  Plant now for buds later!
