Silver Waves Camellia

Camellia japonica 'Silver Waves'

SKU
1970
Abundant, large, silvery white, yellow-centered, semi-double blooms contrast the glossy dark green leaves beautifully. An excellent early to mid-season bloomer for milder regions. Use to accent lightly shaded beds, or mass in foundation plantings or to create a flowering evergreen hedge. A wonderful choice for espalier to dress up a drab wall.
