Countessa Lavinia Maggi Camellias


Camellias are an asset to any garden, bright glossy evergreen leaves give pleasure all year round with the glorious flowers which bloom from late winter to early summer depending on which camellia one has. They are fully hardy and can be kept in a pot or in the garden and do not require a huge space.

They like full sun or partial shade with a North, East or West facing aspect. A sheltered exposure is best as it will protect the blossoming flowers.
