October Magic®️ Bride is a tight and compact, yet upright shrub that will eventually form a large flowering shrub after 10 plus years. The crisp white blooms contrast well against the deep, shiny green leaves for a stunning effect. No browning as they age, flowers remain clean and clear white until they are spent. This is the perfect plant for smaller gardens and large, outdoor containers.
