    An early flowering camellia, that will produce its gorgeous anemone-form flowers in autumn and into winter. A useful and decorative evergreen, has an upright habit that makes it useful for smaller gardens, and as it does not get too big, it can be grown in a large pot, provided you make sure it is kept well fed and watered - very handy if your soil is not naturally acidic.

  • 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.
