Camellia hiemalis 'Hiryu'

APPEARANCE : Small evergreen shrubs to 2m with beautiful displays of flowers in autumn and early winter. Elegant deep rosy red flowers blended with darker red at the edges; cup shaped, with golden stamens at the centre. Camellia hiemalis is a cross between sasanqua and japonica camellias, giving you the best of both worlds - sasanqua's dense foliage, early blooms, and sun tolerance, japonica's neat flowers and cold tolerance.
USE FOR : Ideal as a specimen tree, feature plant, or in groups with other Camellias and acid lovers like gardenia and azalea. Can be used as a hedge or screen and espalier.
CLIMATE : Will come through light frost once established. Tolerant of a wider range of climates than sasanqua or japonica.
PLANTING : Sunny or partly shaded position with morning or afternoon sun.  Plant in a free draining soil which is medium to acidic pH, rich in organic matter.  A potting mix rich in humus is ideal, added at the time of planting.
CARE : Mulch and water well, prune after flowering and fertilise in Spring.

YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
