Other Information

For Camellia japonica varieties, choose a north facing exposure to provide shade and protect from drying winds. Camellias can sunburn easily so protection from direct sun is desired. Plant Camellias in well-drained, well-amended soil. Use a Camellia & Azalea type planting mix to improve soil structure and to help acidify alkaline soils. Prune Camellias to shape and control height after bloom, but before July when the next year's bloom begin to set. Use Camellias as hedges, espalliers or screens or train into tree form. Camellias also make great container plants!
