Caring for Greensboro Red Camellia

Be sure to choose an appropriate location for your Camellia.

Planting

Planting Time: Plant any time of the year taking care to avoid temperature extremes on either end of the spectrum.

Sun: Part sun to part shade

Soil: Fertile, acidic, moist, but well drained

Watering

When newly planted, water deeply at least twice weekly. Camellias prefer a moist soil, but water requirements do diminish as the plant ages and is able to shade its own roots.

Maintenance

Mulching: Mulching is a great way to keep the roots cool, soil moist, and add nutrients to the soil.

Pruning: Prune after flowering if needed to remove dead and dying branches or correct aesthetic or structural issues

Landscape ideas

Try this Camellia for a gorgeous privacy barrier. With foliage being prominent all year around, it will accommodate your screening needs. It not only offers year-round foliage, but it also displays beautiful flowers in the winter months when other plants do not produce flowers!

The Greensboro Red Camellia prefers partially shaded areas and acidic soil. It is extremely important that the shrub is not planted in an area where it gets direct sunlight. Direct sunlight will scorch the plant. It is best to plant where dappled sunlight or filtered sunlight is present.
