Special Attributes

A long bloomer and a flamboyant addition to your garden, the Hermes Camellia produces an abundance of spectacular and stunning, fragrant, semi-double to full-double flowers with rich salmon-pink petals edged in white and variably painted with bright pink and random scarlet streaks. The flowers are produced in abundance over a long season from mid to late winter well into spring. A bright and festive but also durable and reliable camellia, Hermes presence in many older gardens today is a testament as to why it has stood the time since in was first introduced in 1859.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to 8 to 12 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide, depending on pruning, the Hermes Camellia can be grown as a shrub or small tree. As a shrub this beauty is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or as hedge or background plant in landscape borders and is especially nice as a corner plant or espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall) in home foundation plantings. As this camellia grows taller lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive and colorful small evergreen tree that serves well as a focal point specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to camellia gardens, pink theme 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:  5 to 6 feet apart for a solid hedge; 12 feet or more 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.
