Early Spring Blooms That Last for Months

Why Debutante Camellias?

Impressive 4-inch, peony-like pink blooms set the Debutante Camellia apart, starting in fall lasting all the way to early spring!

Plus, these large, explosive blooms cover the Debutante when other plants are dormant. 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.
