Design IdeasThe spreading habit of this Camellia offers more versatility than the erect, shrub forms. Plant as a low growing, hedge in place of formal Boxwood or throughout beds close to your outdoor living space. The beautiful red color and ruffled petals are at home in both a manicured or wild garden setting. This plant is a must for Asian or woodland gardens under large, old shade trees with filtered canopies. Dress up a wall or garage as a shrub, or train the spreading habit of this Camellia as an espalier for a formal look.
