The gorgeous Camellia 'Professor Charles Sargent' produces dense rounded flowers that are simply packed with the dark red petals over an extended period from as early as late November to May. Camellia 'Professor Charles Sargent' is a vigorous and dense upright to rounded evergreen shrub that will be a welcome addition to any landscape.

Camellias are a staple of southern gardens, with their colorful blossoms held against deep rich green glossy foliage on a naturally upright to rounded evergreen shrub. Camellias make great foundation plantings or settle them up against a wall or garage for a eye drawing space in your landscape. You can even pick the flowers and float them in a bowl of water to bring their beauty indoors.

Camellias prefer an acidic, humus rich soil with an organic mulch and average moisture. Once well-established Camellias need little additional care and will continue to perform for years to come. Most Camellias do best where they get light shade or morning sun and the light filtered shade of pines seems to be perfect.

Wherever you plant Camellia 'Professor Charles Sargent' it's sure to become a favorite in your landscape.
