Otome Camellia Japonica
Camellia japonica 'Otome'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-10b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Camellia variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

Otome is not the most well known Camellia, however, it should be! In late winter through early spring, this gorgeous beauty produces an abundance of perfect, full-double flowers with who knows how many luscious pink petals. The flowers are held atop stems covered in lustrous dark green foliage. To enjoy the flowers indoors display several cuttings in vase or float just one in a bowl of water.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 10-12 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide depending on pruning, Otome Camellia can be grown as a large shrub or small tree. As a shrub, it's ideal for use as a hedge or background plant, in groupings, or is especially nice as corner plant or espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall) in home foundation plantings. As the plant grows, lower branches can be removed to form a magnificent and colorful small tree for use as a focal point specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to pink color theme gardens, Asian theme gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and partially shaded woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors during winter above USDA Zone 7a, where this cultivar is not reliably winter hardy. Find Your Zone

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 or wet 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 and evening sun are fine.
