Special Attributes

A truly spectacular Camellia that deserves a spot in every garden where it will grow, and similar to the infamous and ever-popular 'Leslie Ann' Camellia but with larger flowers, the 'Moonshadow' Camellia features striking double white flowers with fuchsia-pink edges painted around each petal. Its dark green leaves provide a wonderful backdrop for the flowers in fall. ( USDA Zones: 7a-9b




Landscape & Garden Uses

A midsize Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 8-10 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, Moonshadow can be grown as a shrub or small tree. As a shrub it is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or as a hedge or background in landscape borders and is especially nice as a corner plant or espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall) in home foundation planting. Lower branches can be removed to form a very attractive small tree ideal for use as a colorful focal point specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders. For those who live above USDA Zone 7a, where not winter hardy, this Camellia can be grown in containers which can be brought indoors during the winter. Find Your Zone

Suggested Spacing:  4 to 5 feet for solid hedge; 10 feet or more 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, Camellias grow and bloom 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.
