The Bella Rouge Camellia is another great camellia from the Southern Living Plant Collection. This Camellia has deep green evergreen leaves and a uniformly compact growth habit which makes it ideal for providing structure as a hedge or an accent in the landscape all year round. Additionally, it serves as a reliable source of fall color. The stunning red semi-double ruffled blooms on the Bella Rouge Camellia start appearing in early fall and will continue into winter. These blooms are fantastic as cut flowers and make a great addition to floral arrangements. Plant the Bella Rouge Camellia Camellia in moist well-drained garden soil in an area that receives shade to part sun throughout the day. Once established, this Camellia requires very little maintenance, needing to only be fertilized with slow release fertilizer once a year in the spring.
