Pruning: Prune after flowering has ended, removing dead or weak wood and shaping as desired. Regular pruning helps promote vigorous growth and better blooms.

Fertilization: Feed with an acid-forming azalea or camellia fertilizer in spring after blooming. Ensure the soil remains moist when applying fertilizer.

Winter Protection: Protect from harsh winter winds. Mulch around the base to shield the roots from extreme cold, but avoid piling mulch against the stem.


For optimal growth of Nuccio's Pearl Camellia, choose a location with well-draining, acidic soil and partial shade. Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball, but no deeper. Remove the camellia from its pot, gently teasing out any circling roots. Position in the hole, ensuring the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Refill the hole, press down softly to eliminate air gaps, and water thoroughly. Apply a 2-3 inch layer of mulch around the base, avoiding the stem, to retain moisture and regulate soil temperature.




The Nuccio's Pearl Camellia prefers consistently moist soil and partial shade conditions. While it can endure partial sun, protection from harsh afternoon sunlight ensures its vibrant blooms remain unscathed. Regular watering, especially during dry spells, helps maintain its lush appearance.
