The Harbor Lights Camellia is a very rare variety that is almost never offered for sale, despite its outstanding beauty. The large blooms are a magnificent bright red, with a circle of flat petals supporting a swirling pom-pom center where the petal tips are flecked with white highlights. With abundant buds, flowering lasts 6 to 8 weeks of the year, in early to mid-spring. This upright evergreen bush has beautiful glossy foliage that always looks great, and it grows steadily into a shrub over 6 feet tall, with branches to the ground.

  • Magnificent rich-red flowers with white-flecked centers
  • Attractive foliage all year round
  • Blooms for almost 2 months of the year
  • Great choice for growing in a pot
  • Hardy in cooler zones

The Harbor LIghts Camellia is hardy from zone 7 to zone 9, and it will grow in sheltered spots in zone 6 as well. Grow it in partial shade, ideally with morning sun and afternoon shade. The soil should be rich, moist and well-drained, and acidic. The pH value of the soil needs to be below 6.5, but if not, this plant grows well in a pot, using potting soil blended for acid-loving plants. Pests and diseases are rare, and pruning is not needed. Water regularly during dry spells, use organic mulch and fertilize potted plants.
