More about White Empress Camellia...
White Empress Camellia produces an abundance of the most beautiful, large white flowers with fluted petals. The bright yellow stamens are an extra-added bonus. Large, dark green, glossy leaves and an upright habit make this one a perfect selection for a background, tall hedge or small tree.
White Empress Camellia is useful to create colorful, evergreen hedges or screens. It can also be "limbed up" to form an attractive, small, evergreen tree that can be useful as a focal point specimen. It is perfect for use as espalier: trained to grow flat against a large, open wall.
Camellias prefer a fertile, moist but well-drained, acidic soil. Constantly soggy soil is a slow killer. Your new camellia should not need regular watering after the first year unless there are extended periods of dry weather during summer. Camellias do best in partial shade or filtered sun. Avoid afternoon direct sun
