Camellia japonica is an attractive variable evergreen shrub that counts over 300 000 cultivars. It has leathery, glossy, oval, dark green leaves and spectacular flowers that usually bloom in late winter to spring and last three to four weeks. Depending on the variety, flowers range from miniature to huge, and its colour from pure white to soft pink and dark red. Camellia japonica thrives in fertile, rich, slightly acidic soil, moist and well-drained. It prefers partial shade and needs to be protected from the afternoon sun and the wind. It is slow to establish and slow to grow but once established it can live very long. Too much sun, shade, and cold weather can reduce blooming. It doesn’t like temperature changes, irregular watering, or to be moved. It’s susceptible to a number of fungal diseases. Camellia japonica is a stunning shrub great for cottage and urban gardens, for beds and borders, backgrounds, and informal hedges. Suitable for growing in containers. Grows very well in conservatories.

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).
