Marge Miller Camellia

Camellia sasanqua 'Marge Miller'

SKU
1500
Although presented in the form of a patio tree or staked to three feet tall, this Australian introduction is the first prostrate Camellia in the world. It makes a superb groundcover, spilling over walls or even from a hanging basket. When trained on a stake or wall, it will cascade down for a lovely, weeping shape. Full, soft pink flowers appear in fall along the stems against the deep-green, glossy foliage. Prefers filtered sun.
