Ideal for screening and can be closely clipped. Can reach up to a height of 4m in 15 years, with spread of 2m.

Plant in cool, moist, lime-free soil. Camellias are quite hardy, happy with morning sun in a part shade position. Avoid planting in frosty and windy areas. Apply acidic fertiliser, compost and/or peat moss to improve pH of soil. Mulch roots in summer to keep cool and retain moisture.
