Camellia japonica is an evergreen flowering tree or shrub blooming between late Winter and early Spring.
Its shapely habit and handsome glossy foliage has made it a popular choice for many gardeners over the years. Bloom colour ranges from white to all shades of pink and red.
They are low maintenance and tolerant of sun, partial sun or shade. They would however prefer an acidic soil, so best with ericaceous compost.
