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

Special Attributes

Among Camellia enthusiasts Sea Foam is recognized as one of the most elegant of all Camellia japonica. Appearing in late winter through early spring its lovely, perfectly formed formal double flowers with pure white petals are breathtaking. The flowers resemble those of double Gardenia and stand out wonderfully in stark contrast to the large, lustrous, dark-green leaves. An excellent cut flower and beautiful in indoor flower arrangements or float just one in a bowl of water.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 10 to 12 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide, the Sea Foam Camellia can be grown as a 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 the plant grows, lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive small evergreen tree that serves well as a focal point specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to white color 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 to 6 feet apart for solid hedge; 12 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.
