Special Attributes

Bonanza Camellia is one of the best and most popular among the fall-blooming and sports glossy, dark green, handsome foliage. The peony-form flowers are produced in abundance during the fall and into winter creating a spectacular show in the landscape!




Landscape & Garden Uses

A Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 4-6 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide (depending on pruning), Bonanza 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:  3-4' 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.
