The Camellia can get to grow to 6′ tall and 4′ wide. This is if the deer will give the one in our garden a chance. Thankfully, they only got to nibble on it a couple of times last year and so this is the first year we have got any blooms on it. It has a really glossy, dark green foliage and small 2″, double buttery white blossoms with a yellow center. It came into bloom for us in early January. Spent blossom drop before they brown.
It is drought tolerant once established, but some summer water will help with bud set.
hybridized by Nuccio’s Nurseries of Altadena, California in 1997
