La Peppermint Camellia is a unique plant where every bloom is different. The basic form is a neat ‘formal’ bloom of white to very pale pink, but each petal has a carmine-red stripe down the center, which varies in width. Some flowers have additional spots of red, and some have large parts of the flower in red – a surprise in every bud. This plant has exceptional upright growth and beautiful foliage, growing up to 10 feet tall in time. It is perfect in garden beds, as a screen, or in pots, which can come indoors in winter if you live in a cold zone.

  • Amazing white flowers with carmine striping
  • Very dense and upright bush
  • Early flowering – often by Christmas
  • An excellent choice for pot growing
  • Vigorous and easy to grow in acidic soil

Partial shade, with morning sun and afternoon shade, is perfect for La Peppermint Camellia. It will also grow in dappled shade and on the north side of a building. The soil should be moist, rich and well-drained, with an acidic pH below 6.5. If you don’t have suitable soil, grow it in a pot using potting soil blended for acid-loving plants. Pests or diseases are rare and pruning is normally never needed.
