Special Attributes

From early to late fall, Nokorika Camellia produces uniquely colored fragrant flowers in a striking deep fuchsia-purple color. Prominent, bright yellow center stamens contrast brilliantly with the flowers. Nokorika is a rare and hard to find true garden jewel that deserves a spot in every landscape where it will grow! The truly gorgeous fragrant flowers and beautiful rich green foliage are excellent for cutting and displaying in your favorite vase, or use just one flower displayed in a bowl of water.



Landscape & Garden Uses

A taller growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 10-12 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, Nokorika 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:  6' for solid hedge; 10'+ 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.
