Noteworthy Characteristics

Professor Sargent Camellia produces gorgeous fully double, dark red peony-like flowers. The flowers are 4 inches in size and begin opening in late winter, continuing through mid-spring. garden should be without at least one Professor Sargent!

Uses

Professor Sargent camellia can be used in the landscape to form tall, colorful, evergreen hedges and screens or used as a specimen shrub or tree in landscape beds and foundation plantings. It is perfect for use as espalier: trained to grow flat against a large, blank wall.

Culture

Camellias prefer a fertile, moist but well-drained, acidic soil. Constantly soiggy soil is a slow killer. Your new camellia should not need regular watering after the first year unless there are extended periods of dry weather during summer. Camellias do best in partial shade or filtered sun. Avoid afternoon direct sun

My camellia arrived this morning healthy and in good shape. Thank you for your prompt service and careful packing. It’s now on my patio in a misty south Georgia rain. I plan to get it in the ground tomorrow under a pine in my front yard next to my two favorite camellias. John Genrty
