Our Plants

Camellia japonica 'Volcano'

Striking bright red, open informal double flowers. A strong bushy upright grower.

CULTURAL

Red varieties will grow well in a partly shaded warm position. 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.

LANDSCAPE USES

Fantastic flowering garden shrubs, very hardy and drought tolerant once established. Suitable for growing in containers in small courtyard or entertaining areas. Plant with other traditional favourites like Azaleas, Pieris and Helleborus.
