Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

An award-winning williamsii hybrid, Camellia ‘Waterhouse’ is notably vigorous, free blooming and extremely hardy, tolerating some of the harshest conditions. Densely petalled, double, fuschia-pink flowers around 10cm (4in) across from March to April. The luminous flowers shine against a background of dark green leaves on a narrow, columnar bush. It makes a beautiful specimen for a woodland garden, and can even be grown as a dense screen or flowering hedge. This popular variety was the winner of a National Camellia Hall of Fame Award. Height: 3-4m (9.8-13ft). Spread: 1.5-2m (5-6.5m).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Camellia plants require a moist, well drained, acid soil in a sheltered, shaded position. In areas where acid soil does not naturally occur, grow Camellia plants in patio containers using a mix of ericaceous compost and John Innes No. 3 and position in dappled shade.

Water regularly until plants are fully established. Where possible, use rainwater as the lime contained in tap water will reduce the acidity in the soil over time. Feed Camellias occasionally with fertiliser for acid-loving plants. Protect plants from cold winter winds and strong early morning sunlight, as this may cause the buds to drop in early spring.

Camellias will appreciate an autumn mulch to protect their roots from winter cold. Camellias require little pruning other than to maintain their shape. Lightly trim stems and remove faded blooms immediately after flowering.
