Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

Does this Camellia have a fragrance?
Claire on Jun 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I did not smell any fragrance this year. Mine have only been planted for a year and they did bloom this year but appeared to dry out before they completed bloom. The weather make have been a factor to this because it got colder than normal. They come packaged well was about three feet by one which I was expecting them to be a little wider. I have five and they are still not much wider or taller in a year time. I have other camellia that bloom in the fall and they have not fragrance. I know they do not grow very fast. but when they do they give lots of blooms. I order the Kramers Camellia because they bloom late January early February I am hoping for the same amount of blooms from these in five of six years.
wanted to plant it in large pot in morning sun. can i train it and trim it to look like a tree?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2014
If you want to plant a camellia in a large pot, how large should the pot be to grow a 6+ foot plant?

I live in Wasington,DC, which has had tough winters 2014-15 The camelias you describe in this site seem to bloom very early: some Christmas-January. Around here, the Camilias come out in March-April. Some have not come out yet (4-20-15)
Which pink or red camellias do you reccomend for this region?

Will my Trees 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.

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.
