A slender-leaved evergreen Camellia flowering late autumn or early winter. The small, single abundant blooms are scented with a prominent central boss. In its native Japan, the leaves are used for tea, and the seeds yield a culinary oil.

Best in a position sheltered from the cold east and north winds in dappled shade. They need a rich acid soil. Though happy in full sun once established. They need a rich acid soil, moist but well drained. Summer watering will initiate development of flower buds.

 

N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.

As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
