Camellia 'Doctor King' is a compact, bushy, evergreen shrub of upright habit, with broadly elliptic, glossy, dark green leaves and profusion of ruffled, single to semi-double, rosy-red flowers with yellow stamens in the centre, blooming from February to April. Camellia 'Doctor King' prefers organically rich, slightly acidic to neutral, moist, well-drained soils. The soil needs to be consistently moist, but too much water may lead to a root rot. It thrives in partial or dappled shade. Direct sunlight will burn its leaves and full shade may lead to thinner leaves and fewer blooms. It can withstand frost but needs to be sheltered from harsh, dry winds, as well as early morning sun. Late frosts may damage the flower buds. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require regular pruning. Camellia 'Doctor King' is a wonderful, long-flowering, colourful, evergreen shrub perfect as an accent plant, great for mixed borders and shrub borders, and excellent for growing in pots and containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
