Plant of the Month – Camel­lia ‘Jupiter’

Derbyshire Life - - Homes & Interiors -

‘Jupiter’ is my favourite camel­lia as its early flow­ers lead the charge to­wards spring and when its gold-cen­tred vermilion blooms open I know that the end of win­ter has be­gun!

Like all camel­lias it likes acidic soil, part-day sun­shine and shel­ter to pro­tect its large flow­ers from win­ter winds. Flow­er­ing early, the pe­tals hold in the cold crisp air for weeks.
