Camellia japonica – Japanese camellia 1.5-1.75m tall

Camellia japonica is a hardy, evergreen tree/shrub with an upright, spreading habit. Find Japanese camellia for sale!

It has dark green, glossy leaves and beautiful pink/white flowers that emerge in early spring.

Often planted for the large, spring flowers, plant in a sheltered, partially shaded spot in gardens, flower borders and beds.

Reaching a mature height of 8m, the Japanese camellia grows well in moist, acidic soils.

For the best results, use ericaceous compost when planting and apply a layer of mulch or leaf bark/mould annually.

Once flowers have faded, give this plant a monthly balanced feed to promote new flower bud growth.

Watering in very dry periods will also help prevent bud drop.
