Special Attributes

The 'Bobbie Fain' Camellia sports one of the most unique and impressive flowers of any C. japonica on the market today. Large, 5-6 inch wide full-double flowers are brilliant rose-red to deep red and are speckled, blotched, and splashed with white variegation in different patterns on the petals. Bright yellow stamens will be noticed peeking out from the center. The large, glossy, dark green leaves are the perfect backdrop for the flowers. This rare Camellia is a true garden jewel!




Landscape & Garden Uses

A somewhat taller growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 10-15 feet tall and 8-10 feet wide, Bobbie Fain 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 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:  6' for solid hedge; 12'+ 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.
