Special Attributes

Adorned with wonderfully fragrant and gorgeous bright white flowers from early fall through December, Setsugekka Camellia is an outstanding choice for the sensory garden. The semi-double flowers have ruffled petals that surround a boss of bright golden stamens for extra added appeal. Gracefully arching branches and dark green foliage are a perfect backdrop and contrast of color for the large flowers. If you are looking to brighten up the fall and winter landscape, Setsugekka is a great choice. The flowers are excellent for cutting and displaying in your favorite vase or float just one flower in a bowl of water.




Landscape & Garden Uses

A moderate to taller growing Camellia sasanqua with an upright habit of growth to about 8-10 feet tall and 5-7 feet wide, Setsugekka 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 specially 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 and elegant 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

Spacing:  4 to 5 feet apart for solid hedge; 9 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.
