Kramer's Supreme Camellia

Camellia japonica 'Kramer's Supreme'

SKU
01812
Deep red buds open to magnificent peony-like, rosy-red flowers with a delightful fragrance. The mid-season blooms create a dazzling contrast against the glossy, dark green foliage, brightening lightly shaded settings. Stunning in woodland borders and foundation plantings, or as a hedge. An old favorite for milder regions of the U.S. Evergreen.

Water deeply, regularly in first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Prune lightly to shape and apply an acid fertilizer after flowering.
