Special Attributes

Nearly perfectly formed, the large, fully double flowers of Nuccio's Pearl Camellia are packed with pearl-white petals with a range and variation of pink-shaded margins. This is one that is sure to add an elegant, formal appearance to the garden. Its lustrous deep-green leaves provide the perfect backdrop for the gorgeous flowers. 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 Pearl 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 feet apart for solid hedge; 10 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.
