Margaret Davis Camellia is sometimes called the ‘Rose of Winter’ and for the right reasons. When the flora around is dormant and the life in the garden is at rest, Camellia Japonica blooms with all its glory. It is an upright evergreen shrub that is perfect to be planted along wall-side borders in city or courtyard gardens.
Camellia plants are native to east Asia and Japan. Camellia flowers have creamy-white petals with raspberry edges and bloom in late winters. The red colour in the petals appears as if bleeding towards the contrasting yellow centre.
The leaves of Camellia bush are glossy green, and this combination of white flowers and evergreen leaves is just exquisite. Once established, Camellia plants do not demand much maintenance and will perform fabulously.
Plant them in a sheltered site away from cold dry winds, where they can enjoy light shade filtered through other trees. Camellia shrubs can tolerate overnight temperatures, but caution is advised to protect the flowers from late frost exposing to early sun.
These plants are suitable for flower borders and beds, patio and container gardening as well. They will thrive in humus rich soil that is acidic and well-drained. Add an organic mulch made of composted bark mixture to retain average moisture.
Camellia white is sure to leave a beautiful impression in your garden.
