Comments: The blush-pink flowers are quite small but numerous on a well established shrub. It is a mid to late flowering cultivar. Provide protection from the direct afternoon sun. Camellias grow best in a slightly acid soil that is well drained. Fertilize camellias in late winter through early spring. They are relatively easy to grow and require little care after becoming established. Tea scale insects can be a problem on camellias, especially those growing under stressful conditions.
