Does this grow very tall, M? It seems a good price and a nice looking bush....I might keep a look out for one myself!

Good price. I think mine is dead, and I paid £30 for it :(( It was a big one growing against a trellis, thought I was getting a 'head start' .....that'll teach me! :((

jacquie they come in different types, shrubs, climbers, so something to suit all.

Yes, Jacqui, you even get variegated ones. There's one that's got yellow and I got two this week with white on them....they are in the pots on my latest blog.

Lovely plants.....but unfortunately evergreen ones short lived, ours is coming to an end after 8 years, so we have a large gap now where it used to be, so if you want to use it to cover something unsightly, use something more reliable, I wish I had known this before I planted one, sorry to be a know it all, at least you will be safe with that beautiful camellia.

Yes, I read recently that they don't last too long. They certainly don't last too long in winters like these recent ones! lol. I'm thinking Escallonia now...much tougher!

They are lovely plants and I was quite upset when I lost mine. I didn't realise they were not 'forever' plants either. The camellia looks gorgeous and very healthy.
