The Leucantha Camellia is a true heirloom plant which has been grown in America for almost 200 years. It has beautiful blossoms of pure-white petals, and a golden center of stamens. It has a more natural look than many other camellias, and fits well into less formal and semi-wild gardens, yet it also looks beautiful among clipped evergreens around your home. It forms an upright, slightly arching shrub to 8 feet tall, and blooms in March or April, after most other camellias have finished, extending the season for their gorgeous bushes.

  • Beautiful pure-white blooms with a center of golden stamens
  • Spring blooming at the end of ‘camellia season’
  • Upright form with a more open, natural look
  • Excellent choice for a pot or tub
  • Can be grown anywhere, with winter shelter

The Leucantha Camellia should be grown in partial shade, with morning sun. An east-facing or north-facing position is excellent, or anywhere with afternoon shade. It also grows in light dappled shade. The soil should be moist but well-drained, and rich in lime-free organic material. It should be acidic, with a pH value of 6.5 or less. Pests and diseases are uncommon, and this bush grows easily in suitable conditions, and needs almost no attention. It has some drought resistance once well-established, but regular watering is best.
