The Professor Sargent Camellia is one of the best forms of Japanese camellia available. Its spectacular rich red flowers, their many petals forming a whorl of color, bring interest to the garden in winter and very early spring, when nothing else is blooming. The rich-green, glossy foliage is evergreen, and the dense conical form is ideal for planting among other shrubs in beds, or as specimens. Grow in a woodland garden beneath trees, with other plants like azaleas, gardenias and Japanese maples. They also make lovely plants for pots, where they will grow for years, and they can be moved around to best enjoy them at different seasons. They fit well in any style of garden, from an Asian-inspired one, to a woodland garden, or a more formal setting. This plant can be grown as a beautiful specimen in a shady lawn, or among other shrubs in a mixed border.

  • Spectacular large rich-red flowers
  • Blooms in winter and early spring
  • Dense, medium-sized, conical shrub
  • Grows well in partial-shade
  • Needs no care once established

Choose a partially-shaded spot to grow the Professor Sargent Camellia. Shelter from afternoon sun is best, and the shade beneath tall trees is ideal. It will grow best in acidic soil, but it can be grown in most moist, well-drained soils of any type, if you use chelated iron regularly. In pots, always use a lime-free potting soil and fertilizers for acid-loving plants. Never lets plants become completely dry, although mature plants have some resistance to drought. They have no major pests or diseases and once established these plants need no special care or attention at all.
