Select destination to calculate estimated shipping costs

Camellia "Emmett Barnes" - a japonica type camellia - is a vigorous grower, but remains compact. Has medium to large, white, ruffled, semi-double blooms. Leaves are rounded and glossy dark green. Early season bloomer which means it will bloom in winter to very early spring.

Perennial and evergreen
Hardy Zones 7-9
Easy care - low maintenance shrub

Camellias are truly a Southern shrub, preferring acidic, well-drained loam to sandy loam soils, but are adaptable to mostly sand or some clay. Only slightly tolerant of salt.

They like a good bit of shade especially from hot afternoon sun so partial sun or dappled/filtered light is good.

Pretty resistant to insects, mildew, and drought conditions and deer don't bother them.

Can be kept pruned to desired height and shape or left to just grow naturally. Can be grown in a large pot on a deck or patio.

When planting, be sure that the trunk is left above the soil line. Water well at least 1-2 times per week (if no rain) for the first 4-6 months. Once a year, after the blooms have finished, apply a dressing of a good balanced camellia fertilizer. Keep the area under the shrub clean, raking away and removing any spent blooms and leaves. Apply pine straw or other mulch to help retain moisture and keep weeds down.

The plant offered here is a 1-gallon size. Plants are removed from the pot and shipped bare root.

Shipping is generally on Mondays and Tuesdays of each week by USPS Priority Mail or FedEx. We do not try to make extra profit from shipping. If what you pay for shipping exceeds the actual shipping cost by more than $3.00, we will refund, rounded off, the overage.

We will contact you and set up the shipment with you. We do not ship plants unless we have been able to contact you and know that you are ready for them and know when to expect them to arrive.
