Camellia japonica Buttermint

Camellia japonica ‘Buttermint’ is a beautiful evergreen shrub that belongs to the Theaceae family. It has striking, semi-double flowers with a creamy-white colouration that is delicately flushed with yellow at the centre. This particular camellia variety is a cultivar of the Camellia japonica species, which is native to East Asia and is highly prized for its ornamental value.

‘Buttermint’ is a compact and well-branched shrub that typically reaches a height of 1.2 to 1.8 meters and has a similar spread. It maintains a neat and rounded form, making it an excellent choice for gardens and landscapes.

The foliage of Camellia japonica ‘Buttermint’ has glossy, dark green leaves that are evergreen, providing year-round interest. The foliage serves as a beautiful backdrop to the striking flowers. These blooms have a creamy-white colour as a base, which gives them a soft and elegant appearance. What sets them apart is the attractive yellow flushing at the centre of each flower, which adds a unique and eye-catching contrast.

Camellia japonica ‘Buttermint’ typically blooms during the late winter to early spring, depending on the climate and growing conditions. Like other camellias, ‘Buttermint’ requires well-drained, acidic soil and benefits from partial shade to protect it from hot, direct sunlight. Regular pruning, if needed, can help maintain its shape and size.
