Kumasaka Camellia has striking rose pink double blooms displayed against glossy, dark green foliage. Kumasaka makes for great colorful accent for those shady areas in landscapes. This evergreen reaches a mature height of 8 to 10 feet and a mature width of 4 to 8 feet. Good companion plants are Jury's Yellow or Snow Chan Camellia.

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting any Camellia as they 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 Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, and Azalea.
