Buy Camellia japonica 'Nuccio's Gem' camellia (syn. Camellia Nuccio's Gem): Beautiful flowers for the winter garden

  • Position: partial shade (but not east-facing)
  • Soil: moist but well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil (or ericaceous compost for container-grown specimens)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: January to March
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The gorgeous flowers of this reliable evergreen shrub are the star attraction. They are glowing white and have lots of petals, which unfurl in a symmetrical pattern creating a dazzling contrast against the backdrop of lustrous green foliage. They are also quite large (up to 10cm across) and they appear from mid-winter to early spring, adding a welcome splash of colour when it is needed most. Even when not in flower though, it will provide a lush backdrop for the summer froth.

    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.
