Camellia ‘Scentuous’ (Camellia lutchuensis hybrid)
For fragrant flowers during winter and early spring, Camellia ‘Scentuous’ is second to none. The semi-double white blooms that resemble apple blossoms are blushed with pink and flower over many weeks. When grown in containers in the north, blooms appear at the beginning of the year. In southern gardens, it is a mid-season bloomer for early season color. The flowers are highly fragrant and arise along the branches of this upright grower. As is the case with most of the Camellia lutchuensis hybrids, it is vigorous, flowers easily and grows fast. Cool nights are a must during the winter.

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.
