Sizing guide
Camellia japonica, commonly known as Japanese camellia, is a species of evergreen shrub native to Japan. It is highly regarded for its exquisite beauty and is often cultivated for ornamental purposes. One of the notable varieties of Camellia japonica is Paolina Maggi, named after the Italian botanist Paolina Maggi. This particular cultivar is known for its striking large, ruffled, deep red flowers with contrasting golden stamens. Paolina Maggi blooms during the late winter and early spring, adding a vibrant splash of color to gardens and landscapes. Its elegant and captivating blossoms make it a beloved choice among garden enthusiasts and flower admirers alike.
To grow Camellia japonica 'Paolina Maggi,' choose a well-drained, partially shaded location. Prepare acidic soil with organic matter and plant the camellia at the same depth as the root ball. Water consistently to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Apply organic mulch and fertilize with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring. Prune lightly after flowering. Protect from extreme cold and monitor for pests and diseases. With proper care, 'Paolina Maggi' can reach a height of 1.8 to 3mt.
