Additional Information About Diana Camellia

Diana™ Camellia Sasanqua is a moderate growing shrub that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 7A through 9B. It matures to an average height of 8 feet to 10 feet and an average width of 6 feet to 8 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides shade, morning sun with afternoon shade, morning shade with afternoon sun or filtered sun and grows best when planted in sand, loam, clay or silt soil that is well drained or moderately drained. In the fall Diana™ Camellia Sasanqua produces yellow and white flowers. The foliage is dark green in color. It attracts visual attention and is resistant to deer, drought, insects, mildew and heat.

Diana™ Camellia Sasanqua can be useful in the landscape along woodland borders, in foundation plantings, as a buffer or screen, as a background, around decks, swimming pools, and other outdoor living areas, under a shade tree, for topiary, as a focal point, in landscape beds or islands or to frame the corners of a home or other building and also in theme gardens, cottage gardens or shade gardens.

Noteworthy Characteristics

The abundance of brilliant semi-double white flowers of  Diana Camellia Sasanqua will brighten the garden throughout the fall season. The beautiful flowers stand out remarkably against the beautiful dark green foliage. In southern regions of the U.S. the Camellia Sasanqua has been known to bloom through Christmas! It's no wonder the Southern Living Plant Collection added Diana to their list!

Uses

Diana is a mid-size 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.
