Plant of the week
CAMELLIA JAPONICA ‘NOBILISSIMA’
A BEAUTIFUL, pure white camellia, with double peonylike flowers that can be as big as 7.5cm in diameter and look stunning against glossy dark green leaves.
Like all camellias, it prefers an acid soil, but you can always plant it in ericaceous compost in a container. The important thing with all camellias is to make sure they are placed out of full sun as it will scorch the flowers. It can grow up to 4m in height and width after ten to 20 years.
