This is an early flowering Camellia that produces peony-shaped blooms with delicately shaded pale yellow centres among glossy deep green leaves. This popular evergreen shrub withstands all but the harshest most windy conditions - making it perfect for cold areas. It's one of the earliest camellias to flower - often producing a display of elegant white blooms for use indoors over Christmas and New Year.

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.
