Special Attributes

With it's large, breathtaking, fully double white to pearl-white flowers with a range of pink-shaded margins, Nuccio's Pearl Camellia adds an elegant, formal appearance to the garden. It's lustrous deep-green leaves provide the perfect backdrop for the large, white flowers splashed with pink along the edges. When in bloom Nuccio's Pearl will catch the eye of every passerby!



Landscape & Garden Uses

A smaller growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 6-8 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, Nuccio's 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' 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.
