Camellia ‘Peppermint’ (Camellia japonica ‘La Peppermint’)
This spectacular heirloom variety has white, formal double blooms with deep red striping on the petals. The bi-colored flowers are medium-size and open in the early to mid-season which is usually during the winter here in CT. It tends to be a slow grower so Camellia ‘Peppermint’ makes an ideal container plant.

Hardiness Zone 7, 8, 9, 10
Bloom Season Spring, Winter
Sun Requirement Partial Sun
Grows to 2-3'
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.
