Buy Camellia 'Spring Festival' (cuspidata hybrid) camellia: Masses of small, double, pink flowers

  • Position: partial or full shade
  • Soil: moist but well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil(or ericaceous compost for container-grown specimens)
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: February to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The slightly glaucous foliage of this lovely camellia will look good all through the year, but it is from late winter to mid-spring, when it produces lots of small, double flowers in fine shades of pink, that this evergreen shrub will be most highly prized. A handsome addition to the shrub border, it has upright, pillar-like growth, so won't dominate its neighbours.

  • 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.

The plant was small in size. It is only 'fast growing' in camellia terms. 5 years on, it is only 1 metre in height. If you want immediate impact, you should go for the bigger pot size. It's a fairly upright plant. Flowers are heavy, therefore the young branches tend to bend downwards when flowering. It's better on a patio when it's young so you can appreciate the flowers.
