Plant of the Month – Camel­lia ‘Jupiter’

Devon Life - - Gardens -

‘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.
