Special Attributes

Its cold tolerant flower buds and exceptionally heavy bloom guarantee a spectacular flower show, Turandot is a large growing, cold and heat tolerant Camellia most recognized for its abundant production of very large and gorgeous, fully double, bright rose-red flowers with abundant yellow anthers at the center. Its large, glossy, dark green leaves provide the perfect backdrop for the masses of flowers produced from late winter well into early spring. 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 8 to 15 feet tall and 5-8 feet wide depending on pruning, Turandot Camellia can be grown as a large shrub or small tree. As a shrub it is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, 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 this camellia grows taller lower branches can be removed to form a small evergreen that serves well as an attractive and colorful focal point specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to camellia gardens, red theme gardens, Asian gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens, and in woodland gardens and borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors during winter by those who livegarden above USDA Zone 7a, where this variety is not reliably winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Spacing:  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.
