An extremely hardy camellia that produces large, ruffled, peony-form, crimson flowers in late winter and early spring. This handsome, evergreen shrub has glossy, bright green leaves, and is one of the most popular and easy-to-grow forms of camellia. Narrowly upright in habit, it's ideal for use in a large patio container or for creating an informal, flowering screen.Garden care: To prevent damage to the emerging buds and flowers protect from cold, dry winds and early morning sun. Water established plants in dry weather to prevent bud drop. Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser in mid-spring and again in June. Top-dress annually with shredded bark or well-rotted leaf mould. After flowering lightly trim or prune any branches that spoil the appearance of the plant.
