Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Camellia ‘Night Rider’ is probably the perfect variety for growing in a container, whilst most other varieties can grow too big and would be unsuitable, this compact specimen only grows to approximately 120cm (4’) and will retain its form for many years to come. Whilst small in size, this hardy, evergreen shrub will make a big impact when it shows its first blooms in spring as the flowers of this Camellia are one of the richest and darkest available, a truly deep maroon which will stand out and be noticed when others are the more traditional reds and pinks. Definitely a variety to be included in any patio scheme or at the front of a shrub border. Height and Spread 120cm (47").

Culinary information: The flowers can be used as garnishes but are also dried and then cooked in Asian cuisine. For more details about edible flowers click here.

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.

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.
