Kramers Supreme Camellia
Camellia japonica 'Kramers Supreme'

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 variety is not reliably 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

With a sweet scent that is rarely found in Camellia japonica culitvars, Kramers Supreme produces an abundance of large, fully double peony-form flowers with ruffled turkey-red petals and cute yellow stamens peeking out between. It has a long flowering season lasting for months from mid-winter into spring during a time when we need color in the landscape the most. The flowers are perfect for cutting and use in indoor flower arrangements or float just one in a bowl of water.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 8 to 10 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide, the Kramers Supreme Camellia can be grown as a large 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 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, red theme gardens, Asian gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and in woodland gardens and borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors during winter by those who live and garden above USDA Zone 7a, where this camellia variety 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.
