The camphor tree is a broad-leaved evergreen that is often twice as wide as it is tall.
It grows to 50-to-100 feet tall.
Camphors grow either in full sun or light shade, and prefer well-drained, sandy soil.
Camphor prefers fertile sandy soil. It will tolerate a pH anywhere in the range of 4.3 to 8.
Light: Camphor will grow in full sun or partial shade.
Moisture: Camphor tree does not do well in wet soils. Established trees are tolerant of drought.
Hardiness: USDA Zones 8 - 10. Hardened off camphor trees can survive freezes down to 10-15ºF (-12 - -9ºC), but new growth will suffer freeze burn when the temperature drops below 32ºF (0ºC) and branches will die back from temperatures in the low twenties.
This is a sturdy storm resistant tree which makes a good windbreak. Since it is hard to burn, it should also be valuable as a shade tree in areas that are prone to wildfires.
The camphor tree (Cinnamomum camphora), also known as camphor laurel, is an exotic that has been widely cultivated for more than a century as a shade and ornamental tree in Florida and elsewhere. This is the aromatic tree from which camphor was derived (used in medicines and mothballs), until camphor oil began to be made artificially in the 1920s. The camphor quickly grows into a good-looking shade tree which is frequented by berry-eating birds. Camphor laurel is native to China and Japan where it has been commercially used for its timber and essential oils for hundreds of years.
