Special Attributes

A U.S. National Arboretum introduction, 'Ack-Scent' is a small to mid-size Camellia japonica with an upright growth habit that produces an abundance of absolutely gorgeous, large and fragrant peony-form pink flowers in late winter and early spring. Adding an extra touch of beauty, a cylinder of white filaments with bright yellow anthers peek out from the center of each flower. To enjoy the flowers indoors display several cuttings in a vase, or use just one to float in a bowl of water.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 8-10 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, Ack-Scent 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 6a, where not winter hardy. Find Your Zone >

Spacing:  5' for solid hedge;  10' or more 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.
