Coloured plant in winter. In February, when we are ready for a little more life in the garden, this evergreen shrub is sometimes already in flower. The large pink flowers look very exotic, something you would normally expect in the summer months. For the rest of the year, this garden plant can be combined well with many other garden plants, whether they are shrubs or ground cover plants, because of its neutral, dark green flowers. In addition, this evergreen garden plant can be used in many garden concepts. Beautiful in a modern, formal garden or in a quiet, classic garden
What is Camellia japonica suitable for?
The camellia grows as a shrub and can accordingly also be used as a hedge plant, area planting or as a pot plant. The camellia is a winter flower and provides some colour in the dark winter months in your garden or on your patio. Light pruning in spring after flowering is possible; heavy pruning is not well tolerated by the camellia.
Camellia in the garden
Camellia japonica grows as a very long-lived evergreen shrub or small tree. Some camellia species are estimated to be more than 1000 years old. Their bright pink flowers contrast beautifully with the dark green foliage. The large pink flowers open in the period from February to April. All camellia varieties thrive best in the garden in a wind-protected, half-sun to half-shade position and are conditionally hardy to -12°C.
