Special Attributes

Diana Camellia is another wonderful Camellia brought to us by the Southern Living Plant Collection. This medium to large growing Camellia Sasanqua is smothered with gorgeous bright white, ruffled, double flowers throughout fall and in to early winter. It's beautiful dark green foliage is the perfect background for the large white flowers. If you are looking to brighten up the fall and winter landscape, Camellia's are a great choice.   

Landscape & Garden Uses

A taller growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 8-10 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide (depending on pruning), Diana 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:  4-5' for solid hedge; 10'+ 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.
