Flawless, white, formal double blossoms make this Camellia a pleasing sight in the winter garden. 'Purity' is one of our earliest bloomers and it always puts on a spectacular floral show. Blooming from late November through the winter, ‘Purity’ is a vigorous, but compact, shrub for the home or garden. Once it initiates flower buds, it requires cool night temperatures, below 55°, to bloom to its fullest potential.

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.
