Camellias - Just Arrived

Camellias - So much more than a good "cupa"! We have a category in our plant database where we enter the uses for a particular plant species - there was only one word to put under Camellias and that was Versatile. In our opinion there is no other evergreen shrub that will reward the gardener as much as the undemanding yet top performing Camellia.

There are definite cultural requirements to guarantee top performance, however Camellias are remarkably tolerant and adaptable. They are invaluable for hedging, screening, background planting, container planting and as one-off stunning specimens. They trim well, transplant easily, and can provide flowers from as early as March through to November. Many have a delicate fragrance - especially species Camellias.

Sasanqua. This is a really good looking Camellia with fine narrow dark green foliage that looks good all year round. In very early autumn the bush is covered in tight buds that open to pretty semi-double flowers that are white blushed with rose pink on the edges. Will tolerate sun or shade. Evergreen. PVR CML013.

This Camellia is a great screen or hedging plant. Clips well and always looks good. Remarkably tolerant but will do best in semi-shade with nicely mulched roots. I have 2 of these on different sides of the property and both flower extremely well.
