Camellia japonica White Formal Double Blooms


This camellia bears perfectly-shaped, formal double, glistening white blooms in spring over dark, glossy green leaves. This plant's overall form and beauty make it an ideal candidate for formal plantings, but it also performs well in mixed or informal ones. Plants require more shade and water when young or becoming established. For best flowering and performance plant them in rich soil and fertilize several times a year.
