The Sparkling Burgundy Camellia is a southern favorite and winner of the ‘Award of Garden Merit’ from the Royal Horticultural Society! This camellia produces brilliant pink, frilly double-blooms from autumn through December. These flowers are medium-sized and reach 3-4″ wide. Furthermore, the Sparkling Burgundy’s blooms emerge in scores and coat nearly the entire shrub when in full bloom!
The Sparkling Burgundy Camellia has dark glossy green leaves that contrast beautifully with its bright blossoms. This evergreen remains attractive all year long, with some of the most consistent foliage around!
Reaches a mature size of 6-10′ H x 4-8′ W. Therefore, left untrimmed, this low-maintenance beauty can reach an impressive size.
Sparkling Burgundy Camellia Care
Hardy from USDA Zones 7-9.
Prefers Partial Sun for best results, 2-4 hours of direct sun a day. Keep in mind that too little sun results in decreased foliage and bloom potential.
Plant in moist, acidic soil, rich with organic matter. Top dress the soil underneath your plant with 2-3 inches of composted manure to keep your soil luscious and healthy.
Water the Sparkling Burgundy Camellia 2-3 times per week during the first growing season. Afterwards, this pink blooming camellia proves itself to be notably drought tolerant.
