    Noteworthy Characteristics

    Gunsmoke camellia produces large, semi-double, red blooms with prominent yellow stamens and coarse, textured petals twisted at the tips. The lustrous, dark green foliage is an excellent background for the blooms.

    Uses

    Gunsmoke camellia is useful to create colorful, evergreen hedges or screens. It can also be "limbed up" to form an attractive, small, evergreen tree that can be useful as a focal point specimen. It is perfect for use as espalier: trained to grow flat against a large, open wall.

    Culture

    Camellias prefer a fertile, moist but well-drained, acidic soil. Constantly soggy soil is a slow killer. Your new camellia should not need regular watering after the first year unless there are extended periods of dry weather during summer. Camellias do best in partial shade or filtered sun. Avoid afternoon direct sun
