Special Attributes

'Autumn Moon' is an fine and elegant fall flowering Camellia sasanqua featuring abundant pure white double flowers on what is the fastest growing Camellia in our gardens. The blooms start early and are very showy in the garden. 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 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 specimen, in groupings, or as a hedge or background plant in landscape borders and is especially nice as a corner plant or espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall) in home foundation plantings. As this camellia grows taller lower branches can be removed to form a small evergreen tree that serves well as an attractive and colorful focal specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to camellia gardens, white theme gardens, Asian gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors during winter by those who live and garden above USDA Zone 7a, where this camellia variety is not reliably winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Spacing:  4 feet apart for solid hedge; 8 feet or more apart 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.
