Noteworthy Characteristics

The dark red, crepe-like flowers of  'Don-Mac' are exquisitely ruffled and feminine. This cultivar originated as seedling nurtured by Sylvia Donahoo of Pensacola, Florida beginning in 1940. It bloomed for the first time in 1951. Each semi-double bloom has a large, yellow crown of stamens in the center. This broadleaf evergreen shrub develops an upright oval habit when mature.

Uses

Don Mac is a larger and taller 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.
