More about Fashionata Camellia...

Noteworthy Characteristics

Fashionata camellia certainly lives up to its name producing very large, high-fashion, semi-double, apricot-pink blooms with curled and crepe outer petals and yellow stamens. Every once in a while, when it feels like really impressing, a bloom will sport a cluster of petaloides at the center of the flower as in the picture to the right. Vigorous grower blooms mid season. 

Uses

Fashionata 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.
