Special Attributes

'Shibori-Egao' Camellia features unique and showy semi-double flowers centered with a boss of bright yellow stamens that are surrounded by randomly blotched pink and white petals. Its deep green foliage provides the perfect backdrop for the bright flowers. Enjoy this beauty indoors by displaying several cuttings in a vase or use just one flower to float in a bowl of water. Shibori-Egao translates to "Variegated Smiling face," and this beauty is sure to make you and your guests smile!




Landscape & Garden Uses

A mid-size grower with an upright habit of growth to about 8-10 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, Shibori-Egao Camellia 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 a corner plant or espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall). Lower branches can be removed to form a small tree that serves well as an attractive and colorful specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to camellia gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors during winter for those who live above USDA Zone 7a, where not winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Spacing:  5' for solid hedge; 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.
