You’ll never worry about Slim ‘N Trim Camellia outgrowing its allotted space. This top choice fits beautifully in modern lots without sacrificing any style!

Planting and Application:

Even the fine-textured broadleaved-evergreen foliage adds a delicate look to this fetching Camellia. Glossy, dark green and pointed leaves are an outstanding contrast to the welcome simplicity of the lovely light pink flowers.

  • Create a showy hedge of Slim ‘N Trim Camellia anywhere you want a little privacy…even in tight side yards! Space them 30 inches apart on center, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.
  • Use them as a beautiful backdrop for your perennial gardens; or add several at one end of your patio planting bed for a little strategic privacy. Even a single plant makes a dense screen in just the right spot!
  • The blooms of this lovely, slender shrub occur at a time when little else is blooming in the garden. Create a sensation with a pair of them planted like sentries on either side of your front door.
  • Slim ‘N Trim Camellia can be grown in containers on terraces, patios and balconies. Buy an odd number for a series of sleek, matching containers and space them evenly for a high-end effect.
  • In the landscape, try spacing them further apart for a stunning focal point. They will grow into individual vertical accents…play with geometric patterns or use a more organic, free-form planting pattern.

Tips for Care:

For the best results, site Slim ‘N Trim Camellia where it will receive at least four hours of sunlight daily. Their root systems require well-drained soil that won’t stay wet for long.

  • Gain life-long support for these valuable landscape assets with symbiotic Nature Hills Root Booster formula used in the planting hole. Get expert planting tips from the Horticulture team.
  • For best results, apply supplemental water to protect your investment. Apply a layer of pine bark mulch over the top of the root system, taking care to pull it back away from directly touching the stems.
  • Prune in early spring to shape as needed and to remove any damaged branches. Fertilize with a flowering Acid Lovers formula in early spring, reading label instructions for application rates and reapplication schedule.
