Turandot Camellia Japonica
Camellia japonica 'Turandot'

USDA Cold Hardiness Zones: 7a-9b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Camellia is not winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

Turandot is a large growing, cold and heat tolerant Camellia most recognized for its abundant production of large and gorgeous, fully double, bright rose-red flowers with yellow anthers at the center. It's large, glossy, dark green leaves provide the perfect backdrop for the masses of flowers produced from late winter well into early spring. Its cold tolerant flower buds and exceptionally heavy bloom guarantee a spectacular flower show!



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 10 to 15 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide depending on pruning, Turandot Camellia can be grown as a large shrub or small tree. As a shrub, it is ideal for use as a hedge or background plant, in groupings, and is especially nice as espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall.) When "limbed up" to form a small tree it serves well as an attractive and colorful specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Great for cottage gardens, cut flower gardens, to frame corners, as a single specimen shrub or tree, screen or windbreak plantings, home foundations, in woodland gardens, and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors overwinter for those who live above USDA Zone 7a, where not winter hardy. Find Your Zone >

Spacing:  5' for solid hedge; 10'+ for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Camellia adapt well to various soil types however prefer a moist but well-drained acidic soil that is rich in organic matter. Constantly soggy soil is a slow killer. In general, Camellia grows and blooms better in partial shade with some shelter from the hot afternoon sun. Morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sunlight is perfect. All-day filtered sun is fine.
