Camellias - landscaping-gardening

 

Camellias

Named by Linnaeus in 1735 in honour of the Jesuit priest and biologist Georg Josef Kamel, Camellia is a genus originating chiefly from China but with a range layer a large area of South East Asia. The exact digit of species is not clear but it is everywhere about 100. Camellia is an chief business-related genus as of one species, Camellia sinensis, the plant from which tea is made.

Most gardeners recognise two main groups of camellias, the autumn acme and the bounce flowering. However, it is not quite that simple. Every time a genus of many species (such as
Rhododendron, Rosa or Camellia) is used to be the source of a horde of hybrids conspicuous groups tend to form.

There are four main camellia groups: Japonica, Reticulata, Sasanqua and Hybrid, with a add up to of less significant groups based about less collective species, such as Camellia hiemalis, and inter-specific hybrids, such as Camellia × williamsii (Camellia japonica × Camellia saluensis).

It's a generally held belief among gardeners that Sansanquas are the autumn acme camellias while the rest are bounce flowerers. That's not certainly true, definitely the Sasanquas are customarily the first to bloom but with alert collection and siting it is feasible to have more or less constant blossoming from early autumn to late spring.

Cultivation

Camellias are often connected with rhododendrons and azaleas and, while not that carefully related, they definitely choose akin conditions. This is not at all amazing as they come from comparable climates and can often be found emergent as one in the wild.

Camellias are commonly less tolerant of excessive cold than the hardiest rhododendrons but they are by no means fussy plants. Most species and hybrids are hardy all through the country, needing no defense apart from perchance in very cold coldness areas, and the summers here are
not by and large hot and dry an adequate amount of to cause much damage.

To get the best out of your camellias it is crucial that you admire the same soil grounding methods as not compulsory for rhododendrons. Camellias have stronger and deeper roots but they still command the same moist, humus filled, loose, well-oxygenated loam if they are to thrive. Equally consistent mulching is continually beneficial.

Camellias choose a neutral to acid soil and will not tolerate the excessive tartness that most rhododendrons will. On amply acid soils the adding of small amounts of dolomite lime will not only amplify the pH but will allow easier uptake of nutrients.

Once recognized most camellias seem to get by quite well not including too much interest but they are business to the same chlorosis harms as rhododendrons so rare supplementary feeding is recommended. Containerised camellias must be fed evenly as they are far more area of interest to deficiencies due to their narrow root spread.

Camellias do best in cushy positions in light shade or where they get only crack of dawn sun. This is not so much for the plant's sake as the flowers'. The plants will tolerate exposed sunny sites but the plant life won't. Too dense shade will promote lank development and bring down flowering. Too sunny and the plants will burn and drop prematurely. A site that is exposed to biting winds will dramatically shorten the life of any vegetation but above all camellias.

Disbudding

Many camellias set large quantities of flower buds that often consequence in solidly crowded small bloom. Tapering out the more solidly packed and weaker flower buds will churn out better blooms of advance shape.

Propagation

Camellias are not continually easy to circulate lacking specialised equipment. Seed germinates well but is of imperfect usefulness as it can only be used to raise new cultivars or to breed species. Elected forms must be propagated vegetatively.

Cuttings must be taken just as the new cyst is hardening off. This is by and large about the end of November. Take new tip cyst cuttings that are about 100-150 mm long and be a consequence the procedures outlined in the broadcast chapter. The cuttings may take numerous months to arrange not including mist or base heat.

Layering is very booming with camellias but habitually there are no twigs close adequate to broken up level to layer. In such cases aerial layering is a reliable, if slow, method.

Occasionally a camellia cultivar fails to act well on its own roots. In which case grafting onto a more enthusiastic stock may be necessary. Average camellias are just about constantly created by grafting considerably than cleanly instruction a average stem.

Cleft grafting is the usual fashion used, however, burden grafts and side wedges will work too. Maturing is seldom used but there is no argue why it shouldn't be successful. Specialised methods, such as seed grafts, are every now and then used but these are for actual enthusiasts that are equipped to experiment.

Pests And Diseases

Camellias are comparatively disease free but you may irregularly come upon one of the next problems.

Viral diseases

These are quite customary among camellias, in fact, viruses are at times carefully introduced to achieve multicolored flora and foliage. The most communal virus shows up as a brainy blonde leaf margin. This is known as virus induced variegation. In minor cases it does a small amount harm but it can cave in a plant by dropping the quantity of existing chlorophyll. Virus diseases cannot be cured, once infected the plant carcass infected.

Phytophthora root rot

This disease affects many types of plants, chiefly those that choose acid forest conditions. This mold disease kills the plant's roots, which leads to the characteristic flaccid development and at the end of the day death. Commonly the symptoms are not apparent until too late. Prevention all through ensuring that the soil is well drained is the best method. Plants can every now and then be saved by washing off the soil, removing the dead roots, drenching with fungicide then replanting in a well-drained attitude but it's seldom worth the effort.

Leaf gall

A fungal disease akin to that seen on evergreen azaleas irregularly occurs on camellias. It causes a thickening and distorting of the leaves, which is finally befall white with fungal spores. Cut off any artificial grass and spray the plant with a fungicide. Do not allow artificial trees to drop near the plant.

Petal blight

This fungal disease cause the plants to degenerate to dilute mush and can dent much of the crop. Check with fungicides prior to bud break and delete any fallen petals from about infected bushes.

Die-back

This can be a serious, even fatal, problem. The shrubbery of young brushwood wilts and browns then the stem begins to die back from the tip. A corruption develops that in due course ringbarks the stem causing its death. If the cankers broaden to the main stems the plant may die. Action with fungicides will help but is not completely successful. Overcrowding, poor drainage and poor drying can all add to this catch as well as construction the broaden of the disease easier.

Camellias are in the main not attacked by any especially abnormal insect pests, just the run of the mill, aphids, scale, caterpillars, leaf rollers and thrips. The usual check actions are efficient on camellias too.

Bagworms can cause hefty harm at times. The leaf sheltered glossy bags (see illustration) are made by the larvae and the flightless adult females of the moth Liothula omnivora. The larvae feed from contained by the bag, which they carry about with them for fortification and camouflage. Hand preference is the simplest control, the use of insecticides is not defensible bar in cases of brutal infestation.

Training

Besides their common bushy habit many camellias are apt subjects for training. The most collective forms are the average and the espalier.

Standards can be fashioned in two ways. The easiest is to choose a young plant with a lone above-board stem and easily delete the lower plant life and any side shoots as they appear. Stake the main stem as it grows and once it has reached the beloved height nip out the tip cyst to induce the branching that will in due course form the head.

The deal with can be speeded up by grafting but the technicalities are not as simple. Choice a brisk upright plant that will hurriedly construct the accepted trunk and graft your select cultivar onto it at the much loved height. Cleft grafts are the chosen logic for camellias but I have found side wedge grafts to be successful. Grafting is the only convenient way to be the source of a expression of grief standard.

Espaliering is just a be of importance of selecting an correct plant and having the patience to wait long an adequate amount of to see the results. There are more than a few methods of instruction the kindling to accomplish the best coverage but most camellias with thin adjustable stems (primarily Sasanquas) can be espaliered with a small amount effort. Bear in mind though, camellias are not biological climbers, espaliers need to be open to the assembly adjacent to which they are growing.

Other exclusive forms.

Camellias can make efficient hedges, any tightly clipped or grown informally. As might be anticipated of a genus that contains the tea plant camellias can hold up everyday border when actively growing.

Some camellias are as it should be for use as broken up covers but customarily only while they are young. In time all but the most at a low ebb forms will acquire into mounding underbrush considerably than true base covers. Pegging the brushwood down as the plants grow is the only way to make certain this doesn't happen.

Camellias in containers

Camellias adapt well to container emergent but they are quick to show signs of nutrient deficiencies. Nobody looks less appealing than a badly chlorotic camellia in a tiny pot. However, with consistent fertilising and the right sized containers camellias will bloom and bloom a great deal in pots.

As with all container plants, bring to mind that their roots are far less insulated from the essentials than those of plants in the open ground. Make sure containerised camellias get consistent water in summer and in cold frost areas move the containers to protected positions for chill to avoid having the soil freeze solid.

Flower forms

Camellias are free in a number of another flower forms. The similes in this book are kept as down-to-earth as doable but irregularly the mechanical terms must be used. The terms single, semi-doubleand alter ego are customary and comparatively self-explanatory but most of the subsequent terms are distinctive to camellia cultivation.

Anemone

A style with large outer petals and massed small chief petaloids.

Peony (paeony) and informal double

Large outer petals and lesser loosely clustered crucial petals and petaloids. The more fully petalled plant life are known as full peony form.

Rose form double

A bend in half flower that opens fully to bring to light the stamens, like a fully blown rose.

Formal double

This flower type has effortlessly agreed concentric circles of neatly overlapping petals. Some have the petals in a very openly definite spiral pattern.

There are also rules governing the terms used to express the size of plant life but as most non-specialist gardeners find these to be more bewildering than constructive they have not been exactingly adhered to.

Species and cultivars

The next medley of species and cultivars includes those most all the rage for plot use or that have attention-grabbing or curious features. They are alienated into cross groups.

Species

These are the most common or influential of the species but they are not far and wide free in nurseries, most gardeners preferring the hybrids.

Camellia chrysantha (China)

A fair camellia was a long wanted after aim of plant breeders, hence the all in all white cultivars with optimistic names such as 'Brushfield's Yellow'. However, in 1980 a real fair camellia was found in the Guangxi prefecture of China. It flowered for the first time in the West in 1984 and has since been the business of great appeal and speculation among camellia growers. It is a large species that can reach 5 m high. The large grass are deep green and brutally veined. The cheerful fair plant life are only about 60 mm diameter but it is not the size of the flora but their ability for hybridising that at the outset had breeders so enthused. Moderately hardy but prefers even cool to moderate temperatures, fanatical of extremes. Camellia societies have a few plants of this species but even now it is not in general existing all through backyard centres.
