Camellias are a trusted southern standard and for good reason! These white camellias are stunning for your fall and winter landscape. They are evergreen and so make a great addition year round.
From their beautiful, glossy green foliage to their stunning, large blooms that pop up when most plants are done doing anything, the Camellia simply shines in the landscape. Camellias are low maintenance, adaptable, and versatile.
Virtually maintenance free, with little care you can enjoy blooms year after year with your Camellia. Plant your Camellia in acidic soil and ensure that it is planted in partial shade to partial sun conditions with filtered sunlight. Too much sunlight will burn up your camellia. Keep your shrub watered regularly until established. Once established, reduce watering, fertilize, and prune after flowers have bloomed.
Camelia Flower Plant Care:
Be sure to choose an appropriate location for your Camellia.
Planting Time: Plant any time of the year taking care to avoid temperature extremes on either end of the spectrum.
Sun: Part sun to part shade
Soil: Fertile, acidic, moist, but well drained
Watering: When newly planted, water deeply at least twice weekly. Camellias prefer a moist soil, but water requirements do diminish as the plant ages and is able to shade its own roots.
Mulching: Mulching is a great way to keep the roots cool, soil moist, and add nutrients to the soil.
Pruning: Prune after flowering if needed to remove dead and dying branches or correct aesthetic or structural issues
