Kanjiro Camellia is a truly stunning cerise pink, semi-double bloom edged in red with golden stamens and a slight fragrance. Makes a truly outstanding cut flower. Dense semi-weeping habit with glossy, dark green foliage.

Kanjiro Camellia produces sizable semi-double flowers in Cerise Pink. It is a slow-growing, upright-to-spreading shrub. With age, it can become a small tree with oval, glossy leaves with profuse late fall into winter blooms in milder climates. Camellias need acidic well-drained soil and should be planted high (with the trunk base well above the soil line) in a protected climate free from extended heavy freezes. Mulching helps to keep roots cool.

How to Care for Kanjiro Camellia

Be sure to read our planting instructions to ensure a healthy and happy plant for years to come!

Planting Camellia Kanjiro Shrubs

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Camellia Kanjiro Shrubs that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil, you may need to add a locally-sourced compost or topsoil to the backfill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a backfill soil for Camellia Kanjiro because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Camellia Kanjiro spread through the loose, nutrient-rich soil much easier than if you used solely the existing soil, which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant too deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally-occurring, beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardener's best friend and can help guarantee your success.

Watering Camellia Kanjiro Shrubs

After back filling and lightly compacting the 50/50 mix of existing soil and compost give the Camellia Kanjiro a good, deep watering. This is not to be rushed. Most of the water you put on the plant at first will run away from the plant until the soil is soaked. A general rule of thumb is to count to 5 for every one gallon of pot size. For example, a one gallon pot would be watered until you count to 5; a three gallon pot would be 15; and so on. Check the plant daily for the first week or so and then every other day there after. Water using the counting method for the first few weeks. Gator bags reduce the labor and time involved in this process and help to provide a deep watering.
