Hiemalis. A very pretty Camellia with large, formal, double, brilliant pink blooms with ruffled petals. These are produced en masse in autumn and early winter. Small dense bright green foliage and an upright 'willowy' habit. Happiest in semi-shade. Evergreen.
Hiemalis. Semi-double blooms of bright cerise with a slightly paler center appear in abundance throughout autumn. A shrub in full bloom simply glows with colour. Easy to grow. Happiest in semi-shade with acid soil. Evergreen.
Sasanqua. Free flowering with semi-double, rose pink blooms that appear from autumn to early winter. Very good for hedging and perfect for a pot. Apparently the name means 'Lion's Head' - not quite sure why it is called that however still well worth growing! Happiest in semi-shade. Evergreen.
Shishi Gashira is a valued landscaping Camellia and has won several horticultural awards. It is very beautiful in flower but the foliage is also attractive being dark green and leathery. It can tolerate some sun but is better in dappled light.
