Camellia japonica 'Silver Waves'
Large, pure white semi-double flowers. Features very strong upright growth with dark green thick leaves.
Morning sun or part shade protected from hot afternoon sun and strong wind. Well drained, slightly acidic soil. Dense shade restricts flowering. Fertilise in Spring and Summer with a specific Camellia fertiliser or a complete organic fertiliser. Prune after flowering to maintain a compact shape.
Fantastic flowering garden shrubs, very hardy and drought tolerant once established. Suitable for growing in containers in small courtyards or entertaining areas. Plant with other traditional favourites like Azaleas, Pieris and Helleborus.
