Camellia is a large genus of around 177 species of evergreen shrub and tree that grow between 1-20m tall.
Camellia japonica 'Volunteer' is an exquisite large-flowered form of evergreen Camellia, the gorgeous large blooms open from fat buds in mid to late winter and continue through to Spring. In mild winters and a sheltered position, they can sometimes start as early as mid-December! Perhaps try in a nice planter near to the house, so you don't miss them.
The beautiful blooms start as a soft pink with a lighter edge, with each flower having the appearance as if it has been dusted with icing sugar; indeed, the flowers have such a sumptuous look to them that they do look almost good enough to eat - like some kind of deliciously sweet candy. They are, of course, for decoration only, providing a feast for the eyes, but who could resist being attracted to these in the garden?
As the blooms age, the intensity of each blooms colour deepens, with the edge of the tip of each petal maintaining a lighter shade; this enhances the two-tone effect of each flower. A recently introduced variety, supply is limited, so do not delay ordering and miss out on a really gorgeous plant.
Supplied in approx 1.5-2 litre containers, our plants are of superb quality and will be covered in buds and blooms in season.
