Description

The Mine No Yuki Camellia is also called the White Doves Camellia, and you’ll know why if you take one look at their plentifully petaled blooms! Each bloom is large, ruffled, and glistening white with a semi-double form. Furthermore, you’ll find a gorgeous golden center in the middle of the flower. These blooms tend to span between 3-4 inches wide, and have a distinctly feathery appearance. Expect it to start flowering in fall and continue into early winter.

The Mine No Yuki Camellia also features reliably beautiful, dark green foliage. These leaves are evergreen, leathery, and serrated, coming to a point on the end. Additionally, this foliage grows in a naturally compact habit, which makes it notably low maintenance.

Once established, this white blooming Camellia is somewhat drought tolerant. In addition, this variety is popular with local birds that enjoy making nests and taking shelter in its thick, sturdy branches.

The White Doves Camellia reaches a mature size of 4-5′ H x 4-5′ wide. Because of this, it’s ideal as a hedge, specimen, accent, mass planting, or container.

Mine No Yuki Camellia Care

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

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

Like most Camellias, the White Doves Camellia needs slightly acidic soil with good drainage. If your soil is too alkaline, treat it with elemental sulfur or another soil acidifier.

Water at least 2-3 times per week during the first growing season, during average weather conditions. For the second growing season, water 1-2 times per week. The Mine No Yuki Camellia requires little supplemental water after it has a few growing seasons under its belt.

Fertilize in spring with an acidic plant fertilizer to keep the plant growing and thriving.
