Camellia ‘Hagoromo’ (Camellia japonica) originates from Japan. It was already known and popular in Europe since the 19th century, also under the name of Magnoliiflora. The light ping to almost white flowers are semi-double and a beautiful contrast to the dark green, shiny leaves. The petals do not unfold/ fold back as much as other Camellias do and so they look funnel-shaped. ‘Hagoromo’ is a slow-growing variety and has a slender crown. Its very good winter hardiness (hardiness zone 7b: -15 °C) makes it a classical garden-camellia.
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.
