Tama-no-Ura Camellia
Camellia japonica 'Tama-no-Ura'

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-no-Ura Camellia produces an abundance of eye-catching, dazzling flowers with a single row of white rimmed, vivid-red petals surrounding a prominent cylinder of bright yellow stamens at the center. The lustrous dark green leaves provide a wonderful backdrop for the flowers. With age the branches of Tama-no-Ura become pendulous making for a magnificent, weeping specimen tree. To enjoy the flowers indoors, display several cuttings in a vase or use just one to float in a bowl of water. A rare jewel!




Landscape & Garden Uses

A moderate growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 10-12 feet tall and 8-9 feet wide, Tama-no-Ura 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, or is especially nice as a corner plant or espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall) in home foundation plantings. As the plant grows, lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive and colorful weeping focal specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to red color theme gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens, Asian gardens and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors during winter north of USDA Zone 7a, where this cultivar is not reliably winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Spacing:  5or 6 feet apart for solid hedge; 12 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.
