Camellia japonica 'Nuccio’s Cameo'

Camelia Camellia japonica 'Nuccio’s Cameo' pink - Hardy plant

Camellia japonica 'Nuccio’s Cameo'
For a Zen garden
Perfect symmetry. The especially large flowers of the camelia 'Nuccio's Cameo' (Camellia japonica) are relaxing to admire. The light pink colour certainly adds to that. The flowers contrast beautifully against the glossy green leaves of the bush. A picture of zen! The flowers bloom at the end of the winter. The plant is evergreen. Enjoy the glossy green bush all year round.
You can shape the branches extremely well in the spring, after it blooms. You can also drastically cut it back if the bush is too big. The next year, the japonica may have fewer flowers. The amount of sunlight doesn't matter for the Camellia. The shrub prefers well-drained soil. Water it more during dry periods.

What do I need?

  • Pruning shears
  • Garden peat, compost and potassium-enriched fertiliser, if possible
Maintenance
Water the Camellia a little when it is very dry, preferably with rainwater (if you have a rainwater basin), because it contains less lime. Once a week is plenty during summer, while once a month is enough during winter.

In March, plant your Camellia in the garden and, if in a pot, sprinkle a layer of compost or soil from the garden around the plant.

Halfway through the summer you can give the plant some potassium-enriched fertiliser. Water the plant afterwards.

If it is very cold, it’s a good idea to protect the budding branches by covering them with horticultural fleece.

Pruning
Camellias are not fast growers, so you only need to prune them for aesthetics. In May, you can cut back the branches that don’t look very nice. If the Camellia has grown too large, you can prune it dramatically. After it blooms, cut all the branches back to 50 centimetres off the ground. If you do this the shrub will need a year to recover, but once it has, it will thrive like never before.
