29,95€ Tax included

In Winter a delay in delivery may appear because of night temperature! The weight of the plant in kg corresponds with the capacity of the pot in liter.

Camellia ‘Adolphe Audusson’ (Camellia japonica) is categorised into the winter hardiness-zone 7a (-18°) and therefore is one of the hardiest Camellias and very suitable for the garden. It is a variety with red, semi-double flowers that reach up to 10 cm in diameter and appear in February/ March. The yellow stamen are a beautiful contrast to the blood red petals. ‘Adolphe Audusson’ inherently grows compact and strong.

General information to Japanese Camellia:
These evergreen shrubs with their entire, fir tree- green leaves love half-shaded situations and an acidic, constantly damp soil rich in humus as well as acidic fertilizer (e.g. fertilizer for Rhododendron). The big flower buds start growing already at (late) summer and ripen from app. September until bloom in February/ Mach/ April at 0 to 10 °C; they open up in a cool place at about 10 °C. If the temperature is too high, the buds will fall down before opening: Japanese Camellia is not an indoor plant! However, it is a beautiful plant for a greenhouse. Depending on the hardiness that varies from variety to variety, Japanese Camellia might also be planted in the garden. In Winter it should then be protected from sun by a fleece or shading net. When planted in the garden, the bloom is (depending on the wheather) some weeks later than potted Camellia in a greenhouse.
