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.

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.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
