Royal Velvet Red Camellia Japonica
Camellia japonica 'Royal Velvet'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-9b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Camellia is not 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

Royal Velvet Camellia is noted for its very large, stunning deep velvety-red, semi double flowers produced in late winter and early spring. A tuft of eye-catching bright yellow stamens reach out from the center of each flower contrasting beautifully with the petal color. Its lustrous, glossy dark-green leaves provide a wonderful backdrop for the dazzling flowers. If you are looking for a conversation piece in you landscape, Royal Velvet will be just that. A true garden jewel! The stunning foliage and flowers are perfect for cutting and displaying in your favorite vase, or float just one in a bowl of water.




Landscape & Garden Uses

A moderate growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 8-10 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, Royal Velvet 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:  4-5' for solid hedge; 9-10'+ 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.
