Camelia X Williamsii ‘St Ewe’

A beautiful large evergreen shrub with vivid pink single flowers in spring. Camelia X Williamsii ‘St Ewe’ is a real showstopper in the earlier months of spring and later winter in milder locations. As with most Camelias this plant prefers acidic soil for healthier foliage and better flowering. The trick to maintaining plenty of blooms each year is to prune Camelias as they are only just finishing flowering, this provides the shrub with plenty of time to form the new buds for the following season.
