About Rosa Plena Camellia (Japonica)

The Rosa Plena Camellia produces rose-pink double blooms in mid-winter to early spring. This Camellia has gorgeous dark-green leaves with a glossy and leathery texture. Each leaf is pointed, evergreen, and lightly serrated on the edge.

This camellia reaches a mature height of 6-10′ H x 6-8′ W. However, it can be trimmed yearly to keep it at the desired size. Left untrimmed, it has a naturally compact, upright growth habit.

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

Use the Rosa Plena Camellia as a privacy screen, hedge, specimen, accent, or mass planting. Otherwise, try it in a large container planting.

Rosa Plena 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 Rosa Plena 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.

Spacing Your Rosa Plena Camellia

Space this Camellia 4-5 feet apart for a seamless planting. Otherwise, plant them 8+ feet apart to leave space between shrubs.
