Fifth Avenue Camellia Japonica
Camellia japonica 'Fifth Avenue'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-10b  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

Fifth Avenue is a moderate size Camellia japonica that produces an abundance of gorgeous, fully double, peony-tlike white flowers from mid to late winter through early spring. Its beautiful dark green foliage provides the perfect backdrop and contrast for the bright white flowers. To enjoy them indoors, display several cuttings in a vase or float just one in a bowl of water.




Landscape & Garden Uses

A moderate to tall growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 10 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide, Fifth Avenue 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; 10-12'+ 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.
