Camellia with Baseball-Sized Blooms
Why Kramers Camellia Shrubs?
Red blooms emerge in January and stay until spring, making the Kramers Camellia an instant landscape favorite. Plus, since it's a moderately fast-growing shrub with evergreen foliage, it also pulls double duty as a unique privacy screen.
When it comes to the Kramers, there's nothing it can't do in your landscape. It's a very large and showy camellia...blooming from January to April with ease.
And the colorful hedge thrives in adverse conditions. Basically, you get a hassle-free shrub that will perform year after year. It's known for its reliability and consistency, as well as its versatility. Especially since its large size allows it to be utilized as a border screen or a hedgerow.
Plant Kramer's Camellia around the foundation of your home, or even in containers. The magnificent winter bloomer that carries you through spring, signaling the start of the season with rich color that's second to none.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- flower buds
- petal blight
Arrived in arrived in a timely manner in good condition And when planted quickly new growth appeared. Very pleased!
Ordered 3 and 1 has petal blight
I ordered three of these camellias. One of them arrived with gray-white fuzzy growths either under the flower buds, or the flower buds themselves. I researched and found out it is flower/petal blight and may have spread to my other two camellias. Camellias with petal blight create **** brown wilted flowers. It easily spreads to other camellias, so I have to keep watch of the other two now and hope the spores from the sick plant won't affect them. Not a good experience.
We are so sorry to hear this! It looks like you've been communicating with our plant specialist who will get this taken care of for you.
MN shock victim
The beautiful Camellia bush I received has been shocked and lost all leaves after planting in my indoor garden. I am hoping it rebounds like my Moringa tree did.
my camellia came very well packed and is a beautiful healthy bush. I planted it and it looks very happy it is to soon to grow buds or flowers yet but maybe in the spring. I think that Fast Growing Trees is a great company to buy from.
The camelias seem to be doing fine. However my last order "Order ID: #9246858" Desert Rose 'Adenium' and the Royal Poinciana tree are not doing well. They were severely stressed when they arrived and I don't think they will make it. Possibly the long transit time to California was too much for them.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location with well-drained soil and plenty of sunlight (a minimum of 4 hours of sunlight daily). Remove your plant from its original container, position into the hole ensuring that it’s standing upright, and the top of the root ball is even with the ground.
Begin backfilling the hole, tamping down lightly as you go. Once the hole has been completely filled, water to allow the soil to settle and eliminate any air pockets. Finally, apply a 3 to 5-inch layer of mulch around the plant to help enrich the soil as well as conserve moisture and control weeds.
2. Watering: We recommend watering these plants in the morning, at the base. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check the top 2 inches of soil for dryness. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water your shrub.
3. Fertilizing: Apply a slow-release fertilizer once a year in early spring, before new growth emerges. Follow up by watering the surrounding soil to allow the fertilizer to penetrate into the roots. Be sure to follow the application instructions on the fertilizer.
4. Pruning: Any broken branches can be pruned back in spring before new growth begins.
