Camellia japonica (standard tree)
Our standard Camellia japonica is a fantastic evergreen plant has an amazing display of flowers at the end of Winter, beginning of Spring. We are offering clear stem standard tree that have been trained and pruned in the nursery so the stem is perfectly straight until the canopy begins at around six foot tall. Camellia japonica are not vigorous trees, so once mature they will only require a gentle prune once a year, even though they are slow growers they do have the capacity to grow to three to four meters tall and being evergreen can be used for screening buildings. We sell specimen trees in two different sizes. The leaves are leathery dark green and Camellia will prefer partial shade rather than full sun.
However Camelia japonica must be planted in a sheltered position, as very cold winds in Winter can damage leaves badly and damage the form of the plant.
Camellia japonica also need to be planted in a high acidic soil to thrive, if your soil is not then you must work in plenty of ericaceous compost to the soil when planting your plants. And also after this fertilise the Camellia root system and ground around the root with ericaceous fertiliser two or three times per year. In April, then July and last in October. If the leaves start to yellow the plants will be telling you it needs feeding, with fertiliser.
