Perfectly poised Slim 'N Trim Camellia (Camellia sasanqua 'Slim 'n Trim') makes a loveable addition to your landscape. This early to midseason bloomer produces an abundance of charming, dark pink blooms that each feature seven notched petals held flat around a center of bright yellow stamens.

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.

#ProPlantTips 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 NatureHills.com 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.
