Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Debutante Camellia


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Debutante Camellia.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Debutante Camellia gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Debutante Camellia again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

The plant arrived in beautiful condition. Unfortunately there was some deer damage from last fall but the remaining blooms were good size and quite beautiful this spring.

I lived in Northern Virginia (zone 7) with the dreaded clay soil. What a marvelous camellia. It didn't require special care and kept blooming and blooming. This is a winner!

Is this fragrant? How long does it take to grow tall?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2014
Best Answer: We bought 10+ Debutante Camellia last spring.
They all survive last extreme cold weather in South Washington
and healthy. But they grow slow (about 4" taller), but we believe
the coming year they shall grow faster as once those trees established
in the first. There were few flowers but we are not sure they were fragrant.

is there a shorter species?
faiza a on Jul 9, 2014
Best Answer: UNFORTUNATELY I DON'T KNOW. THE CAMELIA I PURCHASED LAST YEAR FAILED TO THRIVE AND THIS YEAR (THE SECOND) GAVE UP THE GHOST. OH WEEL I CHALKED IT UP TO EXPERIENCE AND NEVER PURCHASING ANOTHER PLANT FROM AN ONLINE NURSERY AGAIN. LOCAL NURSERIES ARE ALWAYS THE BEST FOR TWO REASONS, FIRST PLANTS ARE IN HEALTHIER CONDITION SINCE THEY DO NOT REQUIRE SHIPPING, PACKAGING AND SECOND PRICING I FIND IS MUCH LOWER OR COMPARIBLE WITH FAST GROWING TREES. FOR INSTANCE A BLOODGOOD JAPANESE MAPLE I PURCHASED LAST YEAR FIRST ARRIVED UPSIDE DOWN AND THE REPLACEMENT FAST GROWING TREES SENT....IT WAS SIGNIFICANTLY SMALLER AND MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE THEN MY LOCAL NURSERY. AS I MENTIONED EARLIER I WILL NEVER ORDER PLANTS FROM AN ONLINE SUPPLIER AGAIN. PERIOD.
