Camelia blooms are very elegant as is shown by this camellia picture.
These evergreen shrubs flourish in acidic soil. They originated in woodland areas from the orient.
Camelias are very spectacular when flowering.
They can grow between 1 and 20 meters (3 to 20 ft) tall. Camelias are excellent as specimen plants, both outdoor and in containers.
Grow your camellias in moist, well drained, humus-rich acidic soil. The pH should be between 5.5 and 6.5.
Maintain a mulch consisting of leaf mould or shredded bark, 5 to 7 cm deep.
Camelias do well in shady walkways. They also thrive under tall trees, particularly pine trees.
Under pine trees, camelias get a natural mulch of acid forming pine needles.
