Description

The Stephanie Golden Camellia is well-known for its prolific flower displays every fall into early winter. This variety produces large bright pink blooms with yellow stamen centers measuring ~3" across. These semi-double blossoms are lightly ruffled on the inside, and are perfect for drawing attention to your landscape.

The bright blooms are contrasted starkly with its attractive dark green foliage. Additionally, each leaf is glossy, leathery, and pointed on the end, with lightly serrated edges.

The Stephanie Golden Camellia is naturally compact and reaches 4-6 ft H x 4-6 ft wide at maturity. However, trim it yearly to keep it at a desired size. At its maximum size, the dense foliage provides plenty of coverage as a privacy hedge or screen.

Use this variety as a hedge, accent, specimen, or container planting. Otherwise, the Stephanie Golden Camellia shines when used on a property line or along a long driveway.

Stephanie Golden Camellia Care

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

Grows best in Partial Shade. 2-4 hours of direct sun, or all-day filtered sun.

Water 2-3 times per week during the first growing season in average weather conditions. During the second growing season, continue to provide supplementary water 1-2 times per week. After it has a few growing seasons under its belt, the Stephanie Golden Camellia is somewhat drought tolerant.

Prefers rich, acidic soil with good drainage. Additionally, top dress the soil beneath this camellia with ~3 inches of composted manure yearly to keep your soil healthy and lavish.

Fertilize yearly in spring with an acidic plant fertilizer to promote growth and bloom production.

Apply 3-4 inches of mulch yearly to protect the Stephanie Golden Camellia's roots, which are vulnerable to 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

How to Space Your Stephanie Golden Camellia

Space Your Stephanie Golden Camellia 2-3 feet apart for a seamless planting. Otherwise, plant them 6+ feet apart to leave space between shrubs.
