Noteworthy Characteristics

One of the most perfect pink blooms we've seen on any Camellia, 'Nuccios Cameo' produces an abundance of soft coral-pink, formal double flowers. The flowers stand out nicely against a backdrop of dark green, shiny leaves. Absolutely magnificent in the garden!

Uses

Nuccios Cameo 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.
