Noteworthy Characteristics

Debutante camellia is an old time favorite introduced in the early 1900's that produces an abundance of gorgeous, fully double, peony type blooms from mid to early winter to early to mid spring. Vigorous upright growth.


Debutante 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.


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
