Family

Theaceae

Botanical Name

CAMELLIA 'Cinnamon Scentsation'

Plant Common Name

Cinnamon Scentsation Camellia, Hybrid Camellia

General Description

White, pink-flushed, spicy-scented flowers deck the spreading branches of 'Cinnamon Scentsation' from midwinter to early spring. This sport of 'Cinnamon Cindy' was discovered and introduced by renowned camellia breeder William Ackerman of Ashton, Maryland. It forms a medium-sized, open-branched shrub with lustrous, light-green, oval leaves. The small, single blooms have gently ruffled petals and numerous pale-yellow stamens. This hybrid camellia is hardy to USDA Zone 7.

Camellias are broadleaved evergreens from warm temperate regions of eastern Asia. They are prized for their abundant showy flowers, their handsome leathery foliage, and their longevity.

Like most camellias, ‘Cinnamon Scentsation' prospers in partial shade and acidic to neutral, humus-rich soil. Shelter it from strong winter sun and winds, and mulch it to keep the roots cool and moist. Prune (if necessary) in late winter or early spring, before next year's flower buds form.

Use ‘Cinnamon Scentsation' to highlight a mixed border or woodland garden. It also makes an excellent greenhouse specimen.
