More about Nina Avery Camellia...

Noteworthy Characteristics

Nina Avery Camellia produces beautiful, white-washed, rose pink blooms with yellow stamens in late winter into spring. The gorgeous blooms are semi-double to loose peony with crinkled erect center petals. Was named for the matriarch of the McIlhenny family of Avery Island, La, where the famous "Tabasco" sauce is made.

Uses

Nina Avery is a larger growing camellia that 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 direct sun in the afternoon.
