Camellia japonica ‘Silver Anniversary’ is a beautiful evergreen shrub with glossy deep green foliage. It has fully-petalled white flowers and comes in a 3 litre pot.
Ideal for celebrating a special occasion, such as a Silver Anniversary or a special birthday. Plus, it’s a great way to bring colour, interest and height to a terrace or patio.
In late winter, flowers form from large, round buds and large flowers bloom every year from February until April.
Camellia’s are lime-hating plants, meaning that they do not grow well in alkaline-based soils. So if your garden soil is more alkaline, then we would highly recommend planting this Camellia into a large pot or container with ericaceous compost.
Best located in a sheltered and partly shaded spot. This Camellia will tolerate some sun if the roots are kept cool, but in cooler locations, it will thrive best in a glasshouse or conservatory with shading from summer sun.
We recommend watering the camellia well before removing from the pot and when planting on, use ericaceous compost and a fertiliser or feed suitable for ericaceous plants, such as Azalea, Camellia & Rhododendron Continuous Release Plant Food or Sequestered Iron.
Always ensure the top of the root ball is level with the surface and water regularly until well established. In spring, it is a good idea to top dress Camellia with composted bark, as well as applying a balanced liquid feed.
