Noteworthy Characteristics

A rare variety that produces large, magnificent, semi-double blooms with variegated deep-pink and white petals that stand out wonderfully against the dark green, glossy, evergreen foliage. An upright grower and mid-season bloomer.

Uses

Bart Colbert is a larger growing camellia that is useful to create colorful, evergreen hedges or screens. It can also be useful in any partially shaded environment as a specimen shrub or "limbed up" to form an attractive, small, evergreen tree. It is perfect for use as Espalier: trained to grow flat against a large, open wall or as a corner plant in home foundations.

Culture

Camellias prefer a fertile, moist but well-drained, acidic soil. Constantly soggy soil is a slow killer. Water only enough during the first year after planting to keep the soil moist, not soggy or wet. Your new camellia should not need regular watering after the first except during extended periods of dry weather. Camellias do best in partial shade or filtered sun. Avoid afternoon direct sun.
