More about Royal Velvet Camellia...

Noteworthy Characteristics

Red just doesn't get any better than this! Royal Velvet camellia produces an abundance of dark velvet red semi-double flowers in late winter through mid spring. This amazingly beautiful camellia was introduced by Nuccio’s Nurseries in Altadena, California in 1987.

Uses

Royal Velvet 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
