This spectacular heirloom variety has white, formal double blooms with deep red markings 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.

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.
