Black Tie Camellia Japonica
Camellia japonica 'Black Tie'

USDA Plant 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

Black Tie Camellia is prized for its exquisite, formal double, deep red flowers that appear in late winter through early spring. For those who adore true red flowers, Black Tie is a must have. Simply breathtaking! The flowers are perfect for cutting. To enjoy them indoors, display several of them in a vase or take just one of the flowers and float it in a bowl of water.



Landscape & Garden Uses

A taller growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 10-12 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, Black Tie 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:  5-6' for solid hedge; 9'+ 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.
