Special Attributes

Seafoam Camellia Japonica features spectacular, large, silvery-white semi-double flowers with "wavy" petals and some of the prettiest and prominent bright yellow stamens at the center that you've ever seen on a camellia. The glossy, dark-green leaves contrast well with the gorgeous white flowers. To enjoy them indoors, display several cuttings in a vase or use just one flower to float in a darker shaded bowl of water. 



Landscape & Garden Uses

A moderate growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 8-10 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, Silver Waves 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:  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.
