As the plant grows taller, lower branches can be removed to for an attractive evergreen tree for use as a focal point specimen in the landscape or home foundation plantings. A fine addition to Camellia gardens, pink theme gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and partially shaded woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors during winter by those who live above USDA Zone 6a, where this Camellia is not reliably winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Suggested Spacing:  5 feet apart for solid hedge; 10 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.
