Seafoam 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 Seafoam 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 Seafoam Camellia

Space this Camellia 4-6 feet apart for a seamless hedge or mass planting. Otherwise, plant them 10+ feet apart to leave space between shrubs.

    I was so pleased with this shrub, I ordered another, and was not disappointed! The first one is setting buds, and this new one is thriving.

    This plant arrived in excellent condition, and is full and lovely. There are lots of buds, so I anticipate many flowers this winter/spring. I have ordered several times from this site and will continue to do so. Their stock is of excellent quality and arrives promptly in good condition. I highly recommend Plants by Mail!

    This is the first time I ordered plants from this site and I am totally satisfied with my purchase.
    The plant was well packaged and arrived in wonderful condition: the leaves were green and fresh. The roots ball was full and still very moist. I see lots of new buds.
    Yes, I will come here again to order more plants and I recommend this site.
