Special Attributes

Sure to be an eyecatcher, Nuccio's Jewel Camellia features exquisite peony-form flowers with white petals edged in shades of soft-pink to fuchsia pink. The center region of the flower is a glowing creamy white. The gorgeous flowers appear in late winter and continue well into spring backed by lustrous deep-green leaves. To enjoy the flowers indoors display several cuttings in your favorite vase, or float just one flower in a bowl of water. A true garden 'jewel'!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to about 6 to 8 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide, the Nuccio's Jewel 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 hedge or background plant in partially shaded landscape borders or is 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 highly attractive small evergreen tree that serves well as a focal point specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to camellia gardens, white theme gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors during winter by those who live above USDA Zone 7a, where this cultivar is not reliably winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Suggested Spacing:  5 feet or more for solid hedge;  12 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, 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.
