Camellia japonica Nuccio's Pearl

Camellia Nuccio’s Pearl

A stunning camellia, with white, pink-flushed flowers, Camellia japonica Nuccio’s Pearl is a medium-sized to large, evergreen shrub with a dense, narrow, upright, bushy habit. The ovate to elliptical leaves are glossy and deep green. Medium-sized (8cm across) double, white flowers, with a pink flush, deeper on the outside petals, are borne in late winter and early spring. This plant must have decidedly acid soil, and should be planted away from cold, drying winds and early morning sun, or thawing after frosts may damage the buds and flowers. Needs little pruning, apart from deadheading and removal of wayward shoots after flowering. Camellia Nuccio’s Pearl holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
