Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

An exceptional new addition to the October Magic® series, Crimson n’ Clover takes us from fall into winter with an extended period of flowering. Beginning in October, as the air becomes crisp, large, crimson-red flowers with a prominent cluster of yellow stamens begin a profusion of blooms. Dark green leaves, flushed with red with new growth, provide the perfect backdrop. A strong, upright grower, Crimson n’ Clover continues this display for 8-9 weeks, carrying us all the way into the Christmas holidays. With a high resistance to common Camellia pathogens such as root rot and dieback, Crimson n’ Clover can be used as a screen or a specimen plant, offering years of reliable performance.
