Border, Container, Espalier, Mass Planting, Privacy Screen, Specimen, Woodland Garden. This brilliant, cherry pink camellia deserves a place in high profile foundation plantings or as a backdrop to outdoor living spaces in the backyard. A must for Asian or woodland garden settings under large, old shade trees with filtered canopies. Dress up a wall or garage as a shrub or train the dense, spreading habit of this Camellia as an espalier for a formal look.
Kanjiro's versatility in shade and partial sun, as well as wet and dry conditions, make this a plant that pairs well with a variety of garden shrubs and perennials. Combine with the big, bold foliage and blooms of Hosta, Coral Bells, Hydrangea, Rhododendron, Elephant Ears, and Japanese Aralia. For an Asian theme, design with mixed Azaleas, Heavenly Bamboo, Dogwood, Japanese Maples, Peony, Iris and Gardenia.
Camellias like slightly acidic soil that is rich in organic matter. A site in part shade and not in afternoon sun is preferred. They also like a somewhat sheltered site, as rain, snow and wind spoil the flowers. Regular mulching conserves moisture around their shallow roots. Avoid excessive cultivation. Pruning is usually only necessary for removing dead, damaged of diseased wood.
