Special Attributes

A truly stunning Camellia that lights up the fall garden, Kanjiro produces LOADS of gorgeous, slightly fragrant flowers with vibrant, cerise-pink petals edged in red that surround a bright boss of golden stamens. Flowers begin in early to mid fall and continue into winter. The plant has a dense semi-weeping habit and glossy, dark green foliage produces an exceptional evergreen for foundation plantings, landscape beds and backgrounds.




Landscape & Garden Uses

A taller growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 6-10 feet tall and 6-10 feet wide (depending on pruning), Kanjiro can be grown as a shrub or small tree. As a shrub it is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or as a 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 small evergreen tree that serves well as an attractive and colorful 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

Suggested Spacing:  6 feet apart for 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.
