Description

The Kramer's Supreme is a classic red blooming japonica camellia selection that provides some fantastic late-season color! Large, double red peony-form blooms with bright yellow stamen appear from late fall into early Spring on the Kramer's Supreme. This is one of the later blooming camellias, so it's an ideal accent for earlier blooming varieties.

This red flowering camellia features leathery, dark evergreen foliage that contrasts wonderfully with its bold blooms. Each leaf is glossy and pointed, with serrated edges.

After it's established, Kramer's Supreme Camellia is notably easy-care.

Reaches a mature size of 6-10' H x 4-8' W if allowed to grow freely. However, it responds well to a yearly trimming.

The Kramer's Supreme Camellia features a moderate growth rate, traditionally 12-24 inches of growth a year in ideal conditions.

Use this camellia as a privacy screen, mass planting, hedge, or container planting. Additionally, this bloomer is ideal for fall cut-flower arrangements.

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

Kramer's Supreme - Red Blooming Japonica Camellia

Hardy in USDA Zones 7a-10b, down to -10°F when fully established.

Prefers Partial to Filtered Sun. 2-3 hours of direct sun or all-day filtered sun will have the best results.

Water 2-3 times a week for the first growing season. During the second growing season, water 1-2 times per week as needed. Afterward, the Kramer's Supreme Camellia only needs supplementary water in times of heavy drought and heat.

Plant in rich acidic soil with good drainage. Furthermore, top-dress the soil underneath this variety yearly with 3-4 inches of composted manure to keep the soil healthy and full of organic matter.

Fertilize at least once a year with an acidic plant fertilizer, starting in spring after the threat of frost has passed.

Apply a few inches of mulch around the base of this camellia to provide a layer of protection from extreme temperatures.

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

Spacing Your Kramer's Supreme Camellia

Plant your Kramer's Supreme Camellia 4 feet apart for a seamless planting. Alternatively, space them 8-9+ feet for gaps between plants.
