Description

Looking to add some color to your fall season? Then look no further than the Kanjiro Camellia! This selection produces semi-double, red-pink blooms with gold centers. Additionally, the Kanjiro is a notably prolific bloomer known for putting on a impressive flower display. Expect these blossoms to start opening from Fall to early Winter.

The Kanjiro Camellia features reliably evergreen, dark green foliage that proves to be consistently dense all year long. Its leaves are rigid, glossy and serrated, attractive in their own right. Furthermore, this foliage provides the perfect backdrop for the bright pink blossoms.

This pink blooming camellia reaches a maximum height of 8-10' H x 8-10' W. However, it can be trimmed yearly to keep it a desired size.

Use the Kanjiro Camellia as a privacy screen, hedge, specimen, windbreak, sound dampener, or even a container.

Once established, this is a water-wise variety.

This is one of our classic camellia varieties, which includes selections such as the Yuletide Camellia, Mine No Yuki Camellia, and Shi Shi Gashira.

Kanjiro Camellia Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 7-10, down to 0°F when fully established.

Prefers Part Sun. Provide 3-4 hours of direct sun or all-day filtered sun to promote maximum bloom and foliage potential.

Water the Kanjiro Camellia 2-3 times per week during the first growing season. Reduce watering to 1-2 times per week in the second growing season. Afterward, this camellia only needs water in times of drought.

Plant in rich, acidic soil with good drainage. Apply a few inches of composted manure around the base of your plant yearly to keep your soil rich and healthy. In addition, add 2-3 inches of mulch around your plant yearly as well to keep the roots protected from extreme temperatures.

Fertilize with an acidic plant fertilizer every few months during the growing season while the plant is young to encourage maximum growth. Once your Kanjiro Camellia has matured, a light yearly fertilizer application will keep it happy and healthy.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Our plants are adaptable but grow best in the correct USDA Zones. Click here to learn more about your USDA Zone.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations

Kanjiro Camellia Spacing Recommendations

For a seamless planting, plant your Kanjiro Camellia 6-7 feet apart. Alternatively, space them 9-10+ feet apart for gaps between plants.
