|Design Ideas||Camellia makes a striking shrub as a single focal point anywhere in the landscape. It is particularly beautiful near the front door where visitors can appreciate flowers at close range. Use in a protected place in the garden, such as an east facing entryway, and be rewarded with handsome evergreen foliage and mid season white flowers. Both the blooms and foliage are fine additions to indoor winter cut flower arrangements. Beautiful as a foundation plant, in a container or as part of a Zen tranquility garden. Great as an espalier to cover walls.|

|Companion Plants||To stay true to its Asian heritage, plant with Azalea, Heavenly Bamboo, Japanese Maple, Fern, Dogwood and Rhododendron.

Provide some filtered shade with small stature, white blooming trees like Apple Serviceberry, and Crabapple.|
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.
