A lovely bi-coloured flowering Camellia with creamy-white petals edged in raspberry. It is originates from Australia and is named after the founding president of the Gardening Clubs there. The ruffled, informal flowers appear in late winter and will often continue through until late spring and really brighten up the dullest of winter days. This is a compact form of Camellia, which is also slower growing than some of the other varieties. It is salt wind tolerant so a good plant for coastal planting.Garden care: To prevent damage to the emerging buds and flowers protect from cold, dry winds and early morning sun. Water established plants in dry weather to prevent bud drop. Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser in mid-spring and again in June. Top-dress annually with shredded bark or well-rotted leaf mould. After flowering lightly trim or prune any branches that spoil the appearance of the plant. Protect container-grown specimens in winter by wrapping with bubble wrap or hessian.
