Companion PlantsThe outstanding, formal blooms on this Camellia pair best with other garden classics such as Boxwood hedges, Juniper topiaries from Monrovia's Italianate Collection, as well as fragrant Gardenias. To stay true to its Asian heritage, plant with Hydrangea, Azalea, Heavenly Bamboo, Japanese Maple, Dogwood and Lily of the Valley.

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. Feed with an acid fertilizer after flowering.
