Companion PlantsThe beautiful, pale yellow blooms on this Camellia contrasts well with blue and purple blooming plants. Pair with low growing, shade loving woodland perennials like Hosta, Fumewort, Astilbe, Iris, Flax Lily, Carpet Bugle and Viola. As a specimen or mass planting in an Asian Garden, go for the airy foliage of Heavenly Bamboo and Azalea as well as the interesting form and structure of Cherry and Japanese Maple.

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.
