Camellia Kasuga Yama is a beautiful and popular variety of camellia that is well-suited to the UK climate. This stunning evergreen shrub is prized for its profusion of pink, semi-double flowers that bloom in late winter or early spring, providing a welcome burst of colour when many other plants are still dormant.
In terms of size, Camellia Kasuga Yama typically reaches a height of around 1.5-2.5 metres (5-8 feet), with a spread of 1.2-1.8 metres (4-6 feet). This makes it an excellent choice for medium to large gardens, where it can be planted as a specimen shrub or used to create an attractive hedge or screen.
When it comes to positioning, Camellia Kasuga Yama prefers a sheltered spot in partial shade, ideally with protection from cold winds and frost. It will thrive in a well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter, and benefits from regular watering during dry spells. With the right care and attention, this camellia can be a long-lived and rewarding addition to any garden.
Flowering time for Camellia Kasuga Yama typically falls in March and April in the UK, depending on weather conditions. During this period, the plant produces large, eye-catching blooms with ruffled petals in shades of pink, often with a central boss of golden stamens. The flowers are held on glossy, dark green foliage that remains attractive throughout the year, making this a valuable ornamental plant for any garden.
