Midnight Lover Camellia is a mid-sized evergreen shrub with an upright habit and glossy leaves that stay deep green year-round.  The small deep red semi-double flowers with prominent golden stamen bloom in mid-fall into winter which attracts butterflies.  Best blooms occur in partial sun and acidic, well-drained soil.

MAINTENANCE NEEDS: Medium maintenance. Too much water retention can increase susceptibility to fungal diseases, including root rot, black mold, blight, canker, anthracnose, and leaf spots.  Watch for aphids and spider mites.   Yellowing leaves indicate acidity too low. Fertilize monthly in spring and summer. If desired, remove all but one bud from each cluster to increase the size of the flower. Prune immediately after flowering.
