Camellia ‘Governor Mouton’ (Camellia japonica)
Vibrant red flowers have white splotches throughout the petals adding grandeur to this camellia that has a semi-double to loose peony form. ‘Governor Mouton’ is a winter to early spring bloomer with an upright to slightly spreading growth habit. It can be grown and flowered in a pot. Remember to use acid soil and provide a chill period during the short days to stimulate blooms. When planted directly in the ground of zone 7 or higher, it creates a stunning hedge.

Bloom Season Spring, Winter
Sun Requirement Full Sun, Partial Sun
Grows to 3-4'
Minimum Temperature Indoors 35

Tips for Success: 

• Use fertilizer only at the beginning of active growth.

• Water when soil surface appears dry and then
  thoroughly saturate the root ball.

• Give partial sun year-round. 

• Give 30-40°F nighttime temperatures during the winter.
  Warm nights during the winter time will cause “bud blast.”
  Up to 59°F is okay.

• Give a slightly acidic soil between (soil ph between 4.8 - 5.8)

• Pinch back young cuttings to get full and bushy growth,
  although this discourages flowering early on.

• 1 tablespoon of Epsom Salts/ one gallon of water given twice a
  year supplies their magnesium requirements.
