Just Chill Red Tip™ Camellia

With foliage just as pretty as its flowers, Just Chill Red Tip camellia is the absolute star of the garden. You’ll love the way the details don’t just fade into the background, but really pop at a time of the year when everything else is winding down. Its lovely anemone-like, pale pink flowers emerge in mid-fall to winter. The wide petals and extremely fluffy, golden centers are such a cheerful contrast to the shiny, dark burgundy new growth. It’s the perfect size for use as a specimen, flowering hedge, or even as a foliage filler option in a cut flower garden.

Plant Care

Light: Thrives in a spot that is situated in direct sunlight for a minimum of four hours and up to all day exposure.

Soil: Pretty particular about soil. Really enjoys growing in moist, fertile, acidic soil.

Water: Enjoys moist soil. Doesn’t respond well to drought.

Fertilizing: Has high nutrient needs. Apply a fertilizer formulated for plants that enjoy acidic soil at least once in the spring.

Pruning: Pruning is hardly ever needed. You can cut dead wood out in the springtime or prune it to shape in the late winter or early spring after it is done flowering.

Other: Foliage works well as a filler for cut flower arrangements and lasts for a long time.
