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.

If desired, remove all but one bud from each cluster to increase the size of the flower. Prune immediately after flowering.
