Special Attributes

Deservedly winning numerous awards over the years, Sparkling Burgundy is one of the best fall-blooming Camellia and an all-time favorite of ours and guests who visit the gardens. LOADS of gorgeous pinkish-lavender colored double blooms are produced over a long period during fall. The semi-weeping habit and the glossy, dark green foliage produces an exceptional evergreen shrub or small tree for landscape borders and foundation plantings.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 8 to 12 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide (depending on pruning), the Sparkling Burgundy Camellia can be grown as a shrub or small tree. As a shrub it is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or as 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 this Camellia grows taller, lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive small evergreen tree that serves well as a colorful focal point specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to camellia gardens, pink or lavender/purple theme gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors during winter by those who garden above USDA Zone 7a, where this camellia variety is not reliably winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Suggested Spacing:  5 to 6 feet apart for solid hedge; 14 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.
