More about Kanjiro Camellia...

Noteworthy Characteristics

Kanjiro is a truly stunning camellia! Gorgeous, slightly fragrant, cerise-pink blooms that are edged in red with golden stamens. The plant has a dense semi-weeping habit and glossy, dark green foliage produces an exceptional evergreen for foundation plantings, landscape beds and backgrounds.

Uses

Kanjiro camellia can be useful in the landscape in straight or curved rows to form colorful, evergreen hedges. It can also be "limbed up" to form a very attractive small tree placed in small groupings or as a focal point specimen. It is perfect for use as espalier: trained to grow flat against a wall.

Culture

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
