Special Attributes

From early fall through December, Setsugekka Camellia is adorned with gorgeous bright white, wonderfully fragrant, semi-double flowers with ruffled petals surrounding bright golden stamens at the center. It's beautiful arching branches and dark green foliage is the perfect backdrop and contrast of color for the large white flowers. If you are looking to brighten up the fall and winter landscape, Setsugekka is a great choice. The stunning flowers and beautiful dark green foliage are excellent for cutting and displaying in your favorite vase, or use just one flower displayed 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 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'+ 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.
