The Q&A Archives: Camelia Height

Question: What height can camelias be expected to attain?

Answer: Camellia sasanqua (blooms later than japonica and usually has double flowers) usually attains a height of 8 to 15 feet. Camellia japonica (blooms earlier than sasanqua and usually has single flowers) will reach 6 to 12 feet in height. Growing conditions including soil type, moisture content, climate, and light intensity will dramatically affect growth. Pruning is another factoring influencing ultimate height.

Hope this helps!
