Camellia ‘Cramer’s Supreme’ (Camellia japonica) tops its red, peony-like, up to 15 cm large, densely packed double flowers with a superb fragrance. The blossom usually starts in March- in a greenhouse it starts earlier and the effect of the fragrance is stronger than planted in the garden: This Camellia is very hardy (hardiness zone 8a: -12 °C) and therefore very suitable for the garden. It inherently grows deeply branched and as a compact bush with strong annual growth.
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.
