Special Attributes

A "bonanza" of bright fuchsia-red peony-form flowers produced in abundance over a long period during fall and into winter makes Bonanza Camellia one of the most popular among the fall blooming C. sasanquas. This variety really puts on a spectacular show in the landscape! Glossy, dark green foliage provides a perfect background to the flowers.




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 is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or as a hedge or background plant in landscape borders and is especially nice as espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall) in home foundation plantings. A fine addition to camellia 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 garden above USDA Zone 7a, where this camellia variety is not reliably winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Spacing:  3 to 4 feet apart for solid hedge; 9 feet 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.
