Description

A showstopper of a plant with a well-deserved RHS Award of Garden Merit! The astonishing white blooms are individually flecked and streaked with raspberry red, so that each is different from the last. Camellia japonica 'Contessa Lavinia Maggi' is an elegant evergreen, with glossy, dark foliage and a vigorous spreading habit. This large, spreading shrub makes a fine specimen plant for acid soils – give it plenty of room to see it at its best! Height and spread: 4m (13’).

Culinary note: The flowers can be used as garnishes but are also dried and then cooked in Asian cuisine. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.


1 x 5 litre potted camellia plant (KB8723)

How to Grow
Camellia plants require a moist, well drained, acid soil in a sheltered, shaded position. In areas where acid soil does not naturally occur, grow Camellia plants in patio containers using a mix of ericaceous compost and John Innes No. 3 and position in dappled shade.
More Info

Water regularly until plants are fully established. Where possible, use rainwater as the lime contained in tap water will reduce the acidity in the soil over time. Feed Camellias occasionally with fertiliser for acid-loving plants. Protect plants from cold winter winds and strong early morning sunlight, as this may cause the buds to drop in early spring.

Camellias will appreciate an autumn mulch to protect their roots from winter cold. Camellias require little pruning other than to maintain their shape. Lightly trim stems and remove faded blooms immediately after flowering.
