Fragrant single pink-tinged white flowers glow against the lustrous dark green leaves of this early-flowering award-winning Camellia. The delicate petals start to unfurl in October just when the garden is most in need of colour and scent. Strongly upright in habit it's best grown in a sheltered spot.

  • 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.
