Noteworthy Characteristics

We think Early Autumn is one of the best Camellias introduced in recent years. The rose colored double flowers are edged in a deep lavender, standing out beautifully against the very dark blue-green foliage. The blooms vary in shape and form, sometimes being a formal double and sometimes resembling a pinwheel. In mild areas, the plant can bloom all season long: from early to mid-fall through the winter and into spring. In cooler areas, blooms are produced from mid-to late-winter through early- to mid-spring. 

Uses

Early Autumn 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 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.
