Another Shrub from Morrison’s
New Plant: Camellia Red just planted in a big pot – we will see How it does God willing. As mine has larger size leaves it’s a Japonica.
Photos at time of purchase
Camellias are found in eastern and southern Asia, from the Himalayas east to Japan and Indonesia. They need an acidic soil – ericaceous, or lime-free compost.
Where I planted
Currently I have replanted in a larger pot to the one shown.
Further info here suggests to avoid using tap water (as contains too much lime) and instead to use rain water (i.e. from Water Butt) : Gardeners World.
