October Magic Ruby Camellia

Asked August 13, 2018, 5:26 PM EDT

I understand that the October Magic Ruby Camellia is a relatively new camellia. The literature says that it is hardier than previous camellias and can grow as an evergreen in Zone 7. Have you had any experience with these. Do they grown well in full sun, windy area and will they retain their leaves in winter. Thanks

We have not done research on that particular camellia. We can say that camellias will not do well in a windy site regardless of how hardy they are.
