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

Special Attributes

Mike Whitman Variegated Camellia features gorgeously semi-double, glowing soft pink flowers painted with bright fuchsia pink to purple streaking on nearly every petal. The large and lustrous dark green foliage is the perfect backdrop for the flowers. The gorgeous flowers are wonderful in a vase where they can be displayed and enjoyed inside the home, or float just one in a bowl of water.




Landscape & Garden Uses

A moderate growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 10-12 feet tall and 7-9 feet wide, Mike Whitman Variegated Camellia can be grown as a shrub or small tree. As a shrub, it is ideal for use as a hedge or background plant, in groupings, and is especially nice as espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall.) When "limbed up" to form a small tree it serves well as an attractive and colorful specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Great for cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors overwinter for those who live above USDA Zone 7a, where not winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Spacing:  5-6' for solid hedge; 11'+ 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.
