A lovely Camellia with large semi-double blood-red flowers offset by deep green glossy leaves and compact upright growth. This is arguably the best red Camellia with masses of flowers for many weeks. It's ideal for a mixed or spring border and the foliage provides an excellent foil for spring bulbs.

  • 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.
