Special Attributes

A true heritage plant and favorite of southern gardeners for its beauty and vigor, the Pink Perfection Camellia is perhaps the most well-known Camellia japonica available. It produces an abundance of gorgeous, perfect, fully double pink flowers in late winter and spring held atop the 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 7 70 12 feet tall and 5 to 8 feet wide depending on pruning, the Pink Perfection Camellia can be grown as a large 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 your camellia plant grows taller, lower branches can be removed to form a small tree that serves well as an attractive and colorful specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine selection for camellia gardens, pink theme gardens, 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

Suggested 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 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 is fine.
