Camellia x 'Autumn Spirit'


Camellia Autumn Spirit is a very cold hardy Camellia covered with intensely pink double flowers fall into winter; complemented by its year round lustrous, glossy, deep-green foliage. This November bloomer reaches a mature height and width of 5 to 6 feet. Autumn Spirit is a sasanqua Camellia which indicates it can grow in sun or shade.

Wow, what a bloomer.  We had a lot of fun watching these in November. One thing I like about fall blooming Camellias is that they can grow nicely in sun or shade.

Remember that all fall blooming or Camellia sasanqua can grow in either sun or shade while the spring blooming Camellia japonica needs at least afternoon shade.

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting any Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, and Azalea as they all prefer fall planting with less watering than you might think. In NC our soil is clay so we prefer to use pine bark soil conditioner when planting these varities.
