Special Attributes

'Autumn Moon' is an elegant, fall flowering Camelia Sasanqua featuring abundant pure white semi-double flowers. The shiny, finely toothed, dark green foliage is a wonderful backdrop and contrast for the bright white flowers. Enjoy this beauty indoors by displaying several cuttings in a vase or use just one flower to float in a bowl of water.



Landscape & Garden Uses

A moderate to tall growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 8-10 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide, Autumn Moon can be grown as a 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 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:  4' for solid hedge; 8'+ 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.
