Pruning: For the Nuccio's Bella Rosa Camellia, pruning is best done after the blooming season to shape the shrub and remove any wayward or dead branches.

Fertilization: Use an acid-formulated, slow-release fertilizer in early spring, ensuring nutrients are available for both leaf and bloom development.

Winter Protection: Despite being winter-hardy, apply a mulch layer around its base for added protection against harsh frosts, especially in the northernmost parts of its growth zone.


For best results, plant in an area with well-draining, acidic soil and partial shade. Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball and of equal depth. Position the Camellia in the hole, ensuring the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Fill in with soil and press down to remove air pockets. Water the plant generously, followed by a 2-3 inch layer of organic mulch around the base, taking care to avoid direct stem contact. This aids in moisture retention and temperature control.

Planting in a pot:

Thriving in partial shade, the Nuccio's Bella Rosa Camellia requires a balance of sun and shadow. Consistent moisture is crucial to its growth, so ensure regular deep watering combined with well-drained soil to achieve optimal blossoming.
