Border, Container, Espalier, Mass Planting, Privacy Screen, Specimen, Woodland Garden. Camellia makes a striking shrub as a single focal point anywhere in the landscape. It is particularly beautiful near the front door where visitors can appreciate flowers at close range. Use in a protected place in the garden, such as an east facing entryway, and be rewarded with handsome evergreen foliage and mid to late season rose pink flowers. Both the blooms and foliage are fine additions to indoor winter cut flower arrangements. Beautiful as a foundation plant, in a container or as part of a Zen tranquility garden. Great as an espalier to cover walls.
The outstanding, formal blooms on this Camellia pair best with other garden classics such as Boxwood hedges, Juniper topiaries from Monrovia's Italianate Collection, as well as fragrant Gardenias. To stay true to its Asian heritage, plant with Azalea, Heavenly Bamboo, Japanese Maple, Fern, Dogwood and Rhododendron. For those shady beds close to your outdoor patios, create a garden with Astilbe, Hydrangea, and Clematis. Provide some filtered shade with small stature trees like Apple Serviceberry, Redbud and Magnolia.
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Provide well drained soil, rich in organic matter. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.
