Camellia japonica 'Festival'


5 year guarantee
1.5 litre pot £34.99
  • Position: partial shade (but not east-facing)
  • Soil: moist but well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil (or ericaceous compost for container-grown specimens)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: January to March
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The flowers of this fabulous new Camellia vary in colour, so it is possible to have creamy white, blush pink and rich, pinky red flowers on one plant at the same time - as well as all the combinations inbetween! They really stand out against the backdrop of lustrous green foliage, which emerges in spring with a pink tinge and offers year round form and structure. It's a stunning addition to the border, and it will also do well (provided it is kept well fed and watered) in a large pot filled with ericaceous compost.

  • Garden care: To prevent damage to the emerging buds and flowers protect from cold, dry winds and early morning sun. Water established plants in dry weather to prevent bud drop. Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser in mid-spring and again in June. Top-dress annually with shredded bark or well-rotted leaf mould. After flowering lightly trim or prune any branches that spoil the appearance of the plant.
