Care & Size Guidance

Camellia japonica demands well-drained, acidic soil and thrives in full- to partial-shade, shielding it from harsh midday sun. Regular watering is vital during dry spells and its establishment period.

Camellia ‘Rosedale’s Beauty’ is slow-growing, and reaches heights of 1.5-2.5 metres after many years. Pruning, if necessary, should occur after flowering to maintain its shape. This evergreen shrub’s breathtaking blossoms make it a perfect choice for borders or specimen planting, offering an exquisite display of colour and texture in gardens.

An ideal spot for Camellias is against a north-facing wall, where they will be protected from the sun and receive the additional benefit of radiated heat on the coldest nights.
