wiltshire, United Kingdom Gb

hello, i would like to grow a camelia, could someone please tell me a good one to grow in partial shade, which won't get too big so i can grow it in a pot, hope everyone is enjoying there weekend :0)



I have just bought a camelia from a local grower here in Wimborne. It is called Margaret Davis, white with pink edges, and they told me it is ideal in a pot.

Just remember it needs ericaceous (lime-free) soil.

And rain water (or cold tea!) if you live in a hard water area
