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.|
