camellia japonica sasanqua
Most agree that camellias produce some of the most showy and stunning flowers you can grow. There are two main groups to be aware of:  spring-blooming varieties and fall-blooming varieties.  Spring bloomers often have larger flowers and a more full form with multiple layers of petals. Fall bloomers tend to have a more open habit with one or two rows of petals.  Most camellias prefer morning sun and afternoon shade or bright dappled light, but fall-bloomers can often tolerate more sun. They are also less susceptible to freeze damage on the blossoms. Most spring bloomers flower between February and March and their flowers are occasionally damaged by late winter frosts and freezes. 
We offer a great selection of locally-grown 3 gallon Camellias, produced by the best Camellia grower in the area (just above Greensboro, NC).
Larger, 7 gallon and 15 gallon plants may be available by special request if available from our growers; please call for details or if you are looking for a specific variety.

You can contact our Assistant Nursery Manager, Christina, with any Camellia questions. Call (919) 847-0117 or email
