    The flowers of this relatively compact camellia vary in colour from near-blush to coral pink - but each one is large and exquisitely formed! They appear in generous numbers over several months from late winter, so they are ideal for adding some seasonal interest, when little else is in bloom. It makes a handsome stand-alone specimen, or could be used to create an informal, evergreen screen in a partially shaded garden.

  • Garden care: To prevent damage to the emerging buds and flowers protect from cold, dry winds and early morning sun. Water established plants in 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.
