Noteworthy Characteristics

Not to be confused with the 'Variegated Governor Mouton', 'Governor Mouton' produces magnificent, oriental-red semi-double to loose peony form blooms. The plant has dark gree, shiny leaves, a vigorous, upright habit of growth, and blooms mid season. Governor Mouton is listed in the Camellia nomenclature book as 'Aunt Jetty' but at least where we're at in georgia, it is known as Governor Mouton. The originator is lost in antiquity as it was first described in 1811.

Uses

Governor Mouton 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.
