Camellia X Reticulatafrancie L

A splendid evergreen shrub, originating in California in 1964, decorated with huge semi-double rose madder flowers with golden stamens. The flowers are among the largest of any Camellia, but the lengthy inter nodes and sparse, distinctive leaves make this an ideal specimen as a trained wall shrub. Prefers light shade, some shelter and a neutral to acid soil with adequate drainage.
