Product Description

Early Spring Blooms That Last for Months

Why Debutante Camellias?

Impressive 4-inch, peony-like pink blooms set the Debutante Camellia apart, signaling the start of spring as one of the earliest to bloom when other flowering shrubs are still in dormancy.

Plus, these large, explosive blooms cover the Debutante for months at a time. Because the Debutante is easy to grow, with drought tolerance and hardiness down to 10 degrees, it offers extra color without the work. Despite its delicate, fragrant blooms, the Camellia requires little attention to reach maturity, thriving on little water and surviving a late or early frost with ease.

And its evergreen foliage makes it well-suited for privacy screens. Not only will you get eye-catching blooms that are sure to get the neighbors’ attention, but you’ll also get deep, vibrant green hedging for colorful borders that block out unsightly areas. It even adapts well to partial sun and some shade, thriving where other blooming varieties won’t.

Green and healthy!

It arrived very green with several buds on it! I planted it in partly shady area and it appears to be doing well. I can't wait for it to bloom! Thank you!

I ordered two 3 gallon Debutante Camilla plants and they lasted thru shipped just fine and I was pleased how that did work out. I'll be thrilled if they continue to thrive.

The blossoms are gorgeous and the leaves are so thick and long lasting. I believe I have four of them maybe five.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant in a full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sun daily) area that has well-drained soil.

You can amend the soil with peat moss, compost or humus to feed the Camellia’s root system, though it will adapt to a number of soil types.

Dig your hole about 2 inches shorter than the depth of the root ball and 2 feet wider than the width. Place your Camellia, backfill your hole until the root system is completely covered and mound the soil over the top. Water thoroughly to settle the roots. Adding mulch around your Camellia will help the soil retain moisture, regulate temperature and prevent weeds from growing.

The Debutante can also be container-planted – simply select a pot that’s twice the size of your plant’s shipped container and ensure it has drainage holes. Use an organic soil mix, place your plant and water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes.

2. Watering: Feel the soil under the layer of mulch every few days. If the soil is dry, water and allow the water to soak into the soil as you pour. In cooler, moist weather, you may not need to water for weeks. During the blooming season, you can increase the watering to encourage fuller blossoms.

For container-planted Camellias, check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down. Then, water until you see water draining from the bottom of the pot.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your Camellia in the spring, using a soluble fertilizer for acid-loving plants once or twice a month in spring and mid-summer.

4. Pruning: After your blooming season has ended, remove any dead or weak wood (a gray tinge to the bark is an easy way to identify dead branches). Shorten lower limbs to encourage more upright growth.
