Special Attributes

A profuse bloomer that begins flowering later in fall and continues well in to winter, Londontowne Blush is a splendid hybrid Camellia producing a plethora of single flowers with soft pink, deeply notched petals that surround a patch of prominent yellow center stamens. Lush, dark green foliage that provides the perfect backdrop for the flowers. Some suggest they bloom in to spring in cooler regions.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 8 to 10 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide depending on pruning, Londontowne Blush 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 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, cottage gardens and woodland gardens and 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 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.
