Special Attributes

In late winter though early spring, the Silver Waves Camellia 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.




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 specimen, in groupings, or as a hedge or background plant in landscape borders and is especially nice as a corner plant or espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall) in home foundation plantings. As it grows taller, lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive small evergreen tree that serves well as a focal pointspecimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to white color theme gardens, camellia 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:  5 feet for solid hedge; 10 feet or more 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.
