Mature Camellia Japonica – 4 meters high, 25 years old

NOTE – THIS POST WAS UPDATED Summer 2016!

This specimen has now been sold, however, we do have five different sizes of Dr Burnside in stock, including a magnificent three quarter standard tree – It is not an everyday occurrence that we can offer our customers a 25 year old mature Camellia Japonica for sale, standing circa 4 meters high. Of the few Camellia Dr. Burnside trees we managed to source this year, we now have just one left in stock. At 4 meters tall, this 25 year old magnificent specimen camellia tree is hard to beat for instant impact. Camellias tend to be slow growing so it is quite rare to come across Camellias that have significant height. This elegant specimen, Camellia Japonica Dr Burnside, has striking deep red semi-double flowers and beautiful dark green foliage all year round.

Camellia Dr. Burnside is full hardy and does well in full sun or partial shade. The flowering period is February to April. Camellias prefer well drained, humus rich / acidic soil. A plant of this height and presence looks stunning in a large container, as a focal point in the garden or as a backdrop to a mixed border.
