Design IdeasThis soft pink camellia deserves a place in high profile foundation planting 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.
