The Alabama Beauty Camellia from the Southern Living Plant Collection produces beautiful red semi-double blooms beginning in fall and continuing into winter. This vibrantly petaled shrub has deep green oblong pointed evergreen leaves and a uniform growth habit which makes it perfect for providing structure as a hedge or an accent in your landscape all year long. One of the earliest bloomers in autumn, the Alabama Beauty serves as a fantastic source of rich fall color and will be sure to draw attention whether in the garden, or as a large container specimen. Plant this Camellia in moist well drained garden soil in an area that receives full sun to part shade throughout the day. Be sure to water frequently until it becomes established.
