Pot Size: 9cm

Plant Height (Inc. Pot): 20-30cm

Characteristics: A taller and very upright variety of Camellia with gorgeous double flowers.

Growth & Spread: Slow growing and eventually reaches a 2.5 0 4.0 m height by a 1.5 – 2.5 m spread.

Flourishing Season: Flowers in late winter and early spring.

Water & Maintenance: Needs regular watering, especially in potted plantings and while getting established in the first few years. Plant in a neutral 7.0 pH soil or less to the acidic side. Protect in the winter and best to avoid east and south facing areas.

The Camellia Japonica “Desire” has beautiful double flowers with soft inner white petals with pink-coloured petals on the exterior of the bud. Excellent cuttings for flower arrangements. 

The plant is an upward grower and being an evergreen, the glossy green leaves will be present year-round. This helps to add some vibrant green notes to your garden during the colder, grey and brown months.

The petal patterns are intricate and present in a bloom of up to 10 cm in diameter. Remove dead heads after flowering to encourage future growth. Prune after the flowering season, as the buds set in summer for the following season.

The plant prefers partially-shaded areas, which offer protection, but allow regular moisture to be available. One suggested planting option for this plant is to use a pot or tub that allows for a more acidic soil while retaining moisture, but drains well.

With winter protection in colder climates, the Camellia species will provide you with wonderful late-winter, early spring blooms. However, this is why placement is critical for the planting area. In addition to being sheltered and protected for winter, this plant needs to avoid exposure to the rising sun during flowering, as this can cause the blooms to spoil while there is still frost on the plant.
