Tama Ikari Camellia Japonica
Camellia japonica 'Tama Ikari'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-9b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Camellia is not winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

The impressive Tama Ikari Camellia produces exquisite, fragrant, single-petaled pink flowers with a prominent cylinder of bright yellow stamens at the center surrounded by a white eye zone. The petals are pleasantly ruffled around the edges. The lustrous, dark green leaves provide a wonderful backdrop for the flowers. To enjoy them indoors, display several cuttings in a vase or use just one flower to float in a bowl of water. A rare jewel!




Landscape & Garden Uses

A smaller growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 8-10 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, Tama Ikari 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; 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.
