Special Attributes

With an extremely long blooming season from mid to late winter to mid-spring, Marie Bracey Camellia is a prized variety that produces an abundance of stunningly beautiful fully double blooms with bright pink petals and lavender overtones. This beauty deserves a spot in every garden where it will grow (USDA Zones 7a-10b). The flowers are excellent for use in floral arrangements or float just one in a bowl.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 8 to 10 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide, the Marie Bracey Camellia can be grown as a large shrub or small tree. As a shrub she 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 she grows taller lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive and color small evergreen tree that serves well as a 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, to frame corners, as a single specimen shrub or tree, screen or windbreak plantings, home foundations, in woodland gardens, and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors overwinter for 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; 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.
