Camellia x williamsii ‘Les Jury’ is an RHS award winning, evergreen shrub that produces distinctive, deep crimson red flowers and glossy, dark-green foliage.
These flowers have a formal double form, growing up to 10cm / 4″ wide, and will appear in late winter or early spring.
This variety grows to a compact and manageable size in the UK, reaching a mature height of around 2 – 3 metres tall, making it versatile enough for practically any size garden. It can even be grown in containers or as an evergreen flowering hedge.
Camellias are popular for their winter and spring flowering, providing a vivid splash of colour when little else is in bloom. They can be planted any time of the year, provided that the ground is not too frosty. Camellias 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.
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 Liquid Ericaceous Feed.
