Comments: A good grower that should be given strong consideration when selecting camellias for the landscape. Grows to be a very large shrub with many flowers. Produces huge blossoms. Plant camellias in partial shade, especially protected from hot afternoon sunlight and in a well drained soil that has a generous amount of humus in the soil.
