A very free-flowering Camellia that produces large peony-form rose-pink blooms for several weeks from April. This vigorous evergreen shrub is particularly resistant to cold weather and is perfect for training against a north-facing wall or fence. The faded blooms drop cleanly when they are spent. This variety is highly recommended by the Royal Horticultural Society.

  • 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.
