Design Ideas The spreading habit of this Camellia offers more versatility than the erect, shrub forms.

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.

CARE
Care Provide organically rich, well-drained, acidic soil. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Prune lightly to shape and feed with an acid fertilizer after flowering.
