Can someone recommend a fast growing, upright, green shiny leafed, preferably double or scented camellia which will grow on the West Norfolk coast (UK) about a mile from the sea? The garden faces southwest, and is quite sheltered. A colleague recently moved and had to leave a large camelia at her old property, I am trying to purchase a replacement as a gift. I think the two main requirements are that it must be extremely hardy, and very fast growing with lots of flowers. Thank you.

On plant Camellia



Camellias 'Debbie' - 'Donation', and my personal favorite 'Anticipation' all come to mind, all will however require acid soil and a sheltered site to be at their best.
