Bring some timely cheer to your garden this spring with this glorious flowering Camellia - we can't sing its praises enough as it's bursting with buds and just waiting to erupt into glorious colour!
Unlike many of the usual winter-flowering plants, Camellia 'Crimson King' will often flower from late winter and into early spring, with an abundance of brilliantly coloured, lightly fragrant red blooms, each with a glowing cluster of golden yellow stamens at the centre - really eye-catching and very distinctive.
The sumptuous red flowers shine against the glossy, evergreen leaves, making this compact shrub ideal for year-round interest. More than able to bring winter interest to any garden border, you can even grow 'Crimson King' in a container, so even without a garden you can enjoy the magnificent display of flowers.
Fully hardy and easy to grow, there's no need to worry about complicated pruning, just snip off any branches that are dead, diseased or dying - so not only is this camellia easy on the eye, itís easy to grow too!
Grow this Camellia in a sheltered, partially shaded position out of drying winds in a moist but well-drained, fertile soil which needs to be acid in nature - if planting in a pot, use ericaceous compost.
Supplied as an established plant in a 1L pot.
