Camellia Japonica 'Nuccio's Gem'

 

Nuccio’s Gem, a spectacular formal white blooming camellia, is one of the most highly regarded Nuccio creations. Depending on local weather, it will bloom between December and March. Feature it in a shrouded area to create a luscious screen and you are sure to get compliments and envious looks all around especially during its blooming season.

 

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting Camellia as they prefer less watering than you might think. In clay soil we prefer planting with pine bark soil conditioner for Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, Azalea.
