Info

Camellia 'Debutante', a close relative, is a slow growing shrub, to 6-8' tall though taller with great age, with the typical green, glossy leaves of C. japonica and, in spring, large, pink, peony-like flowers. The Japanese cultivar 'Debutante Benton', brought to us by Lance Reiners, is a variegated form, adding the interest of slightly ruffle-edged leaves decorated with a central golden marking or blotch. Evergreen, of course, and happy in dappled shade or morning sun with summer water and fertilizer. Frost hardy in USDA zone 8.
