 Red Camellias are often upright evergreen shrub with leathery leaves that stay deep green year-round.  Large single, semi-double, or double red flowers have prominent yellow stamen and bloom from late winter into early spring attracting butterflies.  Best blooms occur in partial sun and acidic, well-drained soil.  

Rather than a specific cultivar, this selection is a random available red flowering camellia.

MAINTENANCE NEEDS:  Medium maintenance. Too much water retention can increase susceptibility to fungal diseases, including root rot, black mold, blight, canker, anthracnose, and leaf spots.  Watch for aphids and spider mites.   Yellowing leaves indicate acidity too low. Fertilize monthly in spring and summer. If desired, remove all but one bud from each cluster to increase the size of the flower. Prune immediately after flowering.
