Noteworthy Characteristics

The long-blooming camellia 'Cile Mitchell' produces large, rose-like, formal double, pale orchid-pink flowers from early to late in the season. 'Cile Mitchell' is one of many named hybrids between Camellia japonica and Camellia saluenensis, which are known collectively as Camellia × williamsii. A relatively fast-growing cultivar forms a dense, upright, medium to large shrub with ascending, gray-barked branches. Leathery, oval, serrated leaves are glossy dark green. Though it tolerates frosts, in frost-free conditions, blooms from late fall to early spring. In cooler sites flowering will occur mid- to late-winter through mid-spring.

Uses

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 foundation plantings.

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.
