Description / Camellia japonica Tama-no-Ura

This gorgeous Camelia was discovered in the wilds of Japan in 1947 by a charcoal burner named Tomokazu Fujita. Named and released by the Prefectural Camellia Society and first exhibited in 1973. This is a simple but unique bloom and over time the plant will begin to develop an elegant, weeping, cascading form that is sure to stun in your landscape. The small to medium blooms boast bright red petals outlined in a stark white this is all contrasted with the bright yellow stamens in the center. Tama-no-ura is a vigorous grower and will grow in a pleasing upright habit. It flowers gorgeously early to midseason so you can enjoy these incredible blooms as winter fades and spring begins. Growing 10-12 feet tall and 8-9 feet wide, the Tama-no-Ura Camellia can be grown as either a shrub or a small tree. As a shrub it is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, as a hedge, in landscape borders, or even as a foundation planting. As the plant grows the lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive and colorful weeping focal specimen. It's the perfect addition to cottage gardens, cut flower gardens, Asian gardens, and woodland borders. It prefers moist but well drained soil and part shade. Add it to your landscape today for a pop of elegant color you won't be able to get enough of.
