Hilda Honeycutt Camellia 
Camellia japonica 'Hilda Honeycutt'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-9b  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

The Hilda Honeycutt Camellia produces breathtaking, double, vibrant deep-pink to red flowers in late winter and early spring. You won't find a brighter Camellia flower! The lustrous, dark green foliage is an excellent background for the blooms. A stunning Camellia in the garden! 



Landscape & Garden Uses

A taller growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 10-12 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, Hilda Honeycutt 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'+ 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.
