This Friday and Saturday are our first official ‘open days’ for this season – although we have had a steady stream of people coming in by arrangement
We will have the best range of camellias that we will have for the season as we do sell out of varieties. Most plants are in 140mm pots with a small number in 200mm pots, mostly sasanquas with a few japonicas and hybrids.
The sasanquas are flowering now and are putting on a good show – the japonicas will follow in the coming weeks.
So whether you need one camellia for the garden, a half a dozen for a screen, or a bunch more for a hedge, come visit, see our camellias growing in our garden, and buy some for yours. We have about 50 different varieties of sasanqua and some 150 varieties of japonica and hybrids. Ask us about screening/hedging varieties, ask us about our fragrant small leaf hybrids.
And remember, sasanquas handle full sun but also perform well in part shade; japonicas – in our climate (SE Queensland) – do best in part shade, as the flowers can burn in our winter sun. See our Culture Notes on this web site.
