Looking Ahead To The Spring

Camellia Anticipation

With Spring now just around the corner we can look forward to many of our early flowering plants. The Camellia plant is always a great favourite, having given us the benefit of its wonderfully large, dark green, glossy leaves throughout the Winter, we can now look forward to seeing it blossom. Camellia x williamsii ‘Anticipation’ is a prime example, a large upright shrub ideally suited for the rear of the border making a superb backdrop for the smaller shrubs to the front. During early Spring we see the large ruffled, double deep rose-pink flowers coming to life, sitting proudly against the shiny dark green leaves.
