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 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

One of the brightest flowers among the fall-blooming Sasanqua varieties, the Sekiyo Camellia produces an abundance of stunningly vivid, fuschia purple to reddish, ruffled semi-double flowers appear over a long period from early, to late fall. The gorgeous flowers are accented with a tuft of bright yellow stamens at the center. Enjoy the flowers and beautiful dark green foliage indoors by displaying several cuttings in your favorite vase, or use just one flower displayed in a bowl of water.




Landscape & Garden Uses

A smaller, compact growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 5-6 feet tall and wide, Sekiyo is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or as hedge or background plant in landscape borders and is especially nice as an accent or espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall) in home foundation plantings. A fine addition to camellia gardens, Asian gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors during winter by those who garden above USDA Zone 7a, where this variety is not reliably winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Spacing:  4 feet apart for solid hedge; 9 feet 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.
