No southern garden is complete without a camellia or two, and Stephanie Gold is one is to die for. It’s loaded with hot-pink, semi-double flowers that have a golden cup of stamens at each center and is definitely a shrub you can see from far away when it blooms late in the year, October through November. Its lustrous dark evergreen leaves create the perfect backdrop for the stunning blooms, so it makes a terrific addition to the shrub border or as a foundation plant in full sun to dappled shade.

The blossoms are lovely as a cut flower, either on the branches in an arrangement or you can float several in a bowl where you can enjoy their delicate beauty up close. When not in bloom, you can cut branches of the leathery foliage and add them to holiday decorations or to bouquets year-round.

Stephanie Gold Camellia Care

Camellias do great in part shade locations, but they will take full sun as long as you provide regular watering. They appreciate evenly moist, well-draining acid soils. If your soil is not very acidic, you can add a commercial soil acidifier each year, as well as a balanced granular fertilizer formulated for broadleaf evergreens. Camellias generally need no pruning if you give them enough room to reach their mature size. The occasional dead or wayward branch can be snipped off as needed, but save any major pruning for spring so you don’t cut off the flower buds.

Stephanie Gold Camellia Spacing

Stephanie Gold camellia works well in garden beds mixed with other shrubs or perennials. It can also be planted in large containers to adorn a walkway or door. When planting in beds, give it enough room so that it can reach maturity comfortably, as it gets 4-5 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide. If you are planting more than one, you can plant them closer—1.5 to 2 feet on center—so they fill in and create a mass.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
