Camellia Japonica, also known as the Japanese rose, is a must-have for any garden. The plant is native to China, Japan and Vietnam, where it grows high in the mountains. The Camellia Japonica Bonomiana blooms as early as the end of winter, which is between February and April, making it the perfect plant to usher in spring. The plant has beautiful white pink flowers with elegant dark pink stripes. The plant has tremendous bud formation, guaranteeing an explosion of color in the early spring garden. Even in winter, the Camellia provides color in the garden, as it retains its leaves year-round. This makes it one of the best bloomers for the northern European climate. The plant is delivered with a height of 50-60cm (measured including pot).
A Camellia prefers a slightly acidic soil, preferably rich in humus. During the summer it is important to keep the soil around the plant well moist. The plant prefers to be in partial shade. Eventually the plant will grow into a large shrub, but several plants can also be put together to make one large shrub. Furthermore, the Camellia does not grow quickly, usually about 15-20 cm per year. Therefore, especially in the beginning, it is not necessary to prune the plant regularly. However, it is important to remove spent branches and spent flowers.
Upon delivery, the plants have a height of 50 to 60 cm (measured incl. pot). The plants are delivered in pots with a diameter of 15cm.
