About Junior Miss Camellia (Japonica)

The Junior Miss Camellia brings color to your winter landscape! This Camellia produces mildly fragrant soft pink semi-double blooms with darker pink edges that stand out on the backdrop of dark green glossy evergreen foliage. These blooms start appearing in late-winter and continue into spring.

This blooming camellia reaches a mature height of 6-7′ H x 6-7′ W. However, it can be trimmed yearly to keep it at the desired size. Left untrimmed, it has a naturally upright growth habit.

This is a great variety for Southern landscapes due to its heat and humidity tolerance.

Use the Junior Miss Camellia as a privacy screen, hedge, specimen, accent, or in mass plantings.

Junior Miss Camellia Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 7-9, down to 0° when completely established.

Prefers Filtered Sun to Partial Sun. Provide all-day filtered sun or 2-3 hours of direct sun for best results.

Water 2-3 times per week for the first growing season. During the second growing season, decrease watering to about 1-2 times a week. Afterward, the Junior Miss Camellia only needs water during extreme drought and heat.

Plant in rich, acidic soil with good drainage for best results. In addition, apply 3-4 inches of composted manure yearly to keep your soil healthy and full of organic matter.

Fertilize in early spring with an acidic plant fertilizer to keep your camellia happy and healthy.

Apply a few inches of mulch yearly to protect this camellia’s roots from extreme temperatures.

    Beautiful plant received in 3 days and packaged securely. Big glossy leaves and huge frilly blooms are even prettier in person than the picture online.
