Camellia japonica 'Debbie' - Camellia
With its abundant, weather-resistant pink, double flowers, 'Debbie' (Camellia japonica) is a garden and pot camellia (winter hardiness zone 8a) that has been a proven performer for more than 40 years.
Camellia 'Debbie' (Camellia x williamsii) convinces with its abundance of up to 12cm across, rose pink, double flowers from February. Its good to very good winter hardiness, especially of the flowers and buds, makes it one of the most widespread and popular varieties. Vigorous and opne habit growth.
General information on Japanese Camellia: The evergreen shrubs with the glossy, leathery dark green leaves love semi-shady places and acidic, well drained but moist, humus-rich soil as well as acidic fertilizers (e.g. rhododendron fertilizer). Their thick flower buds are already formed from (late) summer, ripen from about September until flowering in February/March/April at 0 to 10 °C, and open in cool places around 10 °C. If the temperature is too high, the buds will fall off before they open: Japanese Camellias are not houseplants! But they are wonderful winter garden plants, which rightly bear the nickname "Roses of Winter". Or – due to their surprisingly high winter hardiness, depending on the variety – they can be planted out as permanent guests in the garden, protected from the winter sun with a shade net or fleece. When planted in the garden, flowering starts (depending on the weather) a few weeks later than potted Camellia in a conservatory.
