Japanese Camellias Basic Characteristics

Pink Japanses Camellia Flowering budd
These Japanese Camellias in my backyard are beautiful when they bloom, but boy, they don't last long at all. The only way I have been able to enjoy them is if I venture into my backyard during the couple of weeks that the blooms just started. Around January this shrub would be filled with Japonica buds. Then, they bloom quite early, around late January into February. At this time of year, it is usually still cold, so you can imagine that I don't go outside that often to admire my Japanese Camellias.


I haven't tried it yet, but supposedly Japanese Camellias are easy to propagate. All you have to do is snip-off the stem tip cuttings in the Winter and put it in moist soil. Japanese Camellias can be grown indoors and likes humidity, although it might be tricky to be able to re-create the type of climate it needs for indoors.

    1. Yes, absolutely. I think it makes it extra special to see the camellia's life coming to its end. The change of color is so dramatic.

  5. Yes, Japanese camelia bloom in the cold season. But as there are few flowers in the winter Japanese garden,its red flowers are prominently lovely in the bare garden.
    Sasanqua takes after Japanese-Camelia and they are sometimes used as heage.
    Have a nice week!

    1. Glad it's your first time, we all take Camellias in the US for granted. They usually produce tons of flowers, even on shrubs that are not that great in health.
