The Setsu Gekka Camellia has very large pure-white blossoms with a center of yellow stamens. The petals are fluted and wavy, giving this plant a unique, exotic look. It blooms in fall and early winter, with blossoms opening in succession over many weeks. Growing up to 10 feet tall, its open, semi-weeping form makes it attractive in informal settings, among trees, in tubs, and spread out against a trellis. The glossy, dark-green evergreen foliage is always handsome, making this a great year-round garden shrub.

  • Large snow-white blooms with fluted and crimped petals
  • Blooms in fall over many weeks
  • Semi-weeping shrub, or train it on a trellis
  • Tolerates more sun and drought than Japanese camellias
  • Suitable for tubs and planters too

The Setsu Gekka Camellia can be grown outdoors from zone 7, and in planters anywhere, bringing plants into a cool, bright place for the coldest months. Morning sun and afternoon shade, or light full shade, gives the best results.The ideal soil is rich, moist and well-drained, with a pH below 6.5. Adding lime-free compost to the soil, and as annual mulch, is valuable, and keep plants watered during dry weather. Grow in a tub or large pot, in soil for acid-loving plants, if you don’t have suitable soil.
