Noteworthy Characteristics

Camellia Japonica Kick Off is an attractive evergreen shrub year round but what's really special are the abundance of soft-pink flowers streaked in dark pink.  The flowers stand out nicely against the glossy dark green foliage. This variety is particularly hardy and will flourish in cold areas. A vigorous grower.

Uses

Kick Off 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
