    The mainly upright stems of this camellia are quite pliable, so it is possible to tie them onto a sturdy support and grow this as a wall shrub. If left to develop naturally, it will form a dense, bushy evergreen, that is smothered in pinkish red winter flowers, each with a dense cluster of yellow-tipped stamens.

  • 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.
