Maiden Of Great Promise Camellia
Camellia japonica 'Maiden Of Great Promise'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 6a-9b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 6a, 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

Rated one of the most cold hardy Camellias in existence, Maidens of Great Promise is also one of the most stunningly beautiful. The origin of this variety is said to be in Ohio, which is why it's so tolerant of cold temperatures. We've also seen reports of it thriving in the Philadelphia, PA area. Much like the flowers of the prized red Professor Sargent Camellia, the flowers of Maidens Of Great Promise are large and lovely peony form but with rich pink wavy petals and salmon highlights. The flowers come later in the season than other C. japonica cultivars extending the spring Camellia flowering season. We love this Camellia and know you will too!




Landscape & Garden Uses

A compact Camellia growing 5 to 8 feet tall and 5 to 8 feet wide depending on pruning, Maidens of Great Promise 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, 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 6a, where this camellia variety is not reliably winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Suggested Spacing:  5 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.
