The Q&A Archives: Deer Resistent Camellia

Question: Which type os camellia (must be deer resistent) would be best to use as a screen? Needs to be fast growing- at least to 15 feet.

Thank you

Answer: Sadly, nothing is deer-proof. A hungry deer will nibble most any plant. As far as which camellia grows fastest, Camellia reticulata not only produces the largest flowers and densest growth, but is the tallest as well. Try 'Buddha' if you like rose pink flowers, 'Shot Silk' for light pink blooms, or 'Crimson Robe' for red flowers.
