Ideal small tree or screen for Australian gardens with glossy dark leaves and big white flowers in autumn-winter. Easy to grow and undemanding, given protection from frost while young.

Would look wonderful planted alongside its relative, a white sasanqua camellia. The old flowers drop off and fall to the ground, sunny-side-up, so the plant always looks neat.
