Special Attributes

A prolific fall bloomer, the 'Northern Lights' Camellia produces very large flowers up to 4 inches across with a single row of white wavy petals "airbrushed" randomly with pinkish lavender around the edges. The petals surround a boss of bright golden stamens enhancing the overall appeal of the delicate flowers, which stand out beautifully against deep green foliage on fast -growing upright plants 8 to 10 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide. 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 8 to 10 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide, the Northern Lights Camellia 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 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, white theme gardens, Asian gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors during winter by those who live and garden above USDA Zone 7a, where this camellia variety is not reliably winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Suggested Spacing:  5 to 6 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.
