Camellia x williamsii 'Anticipation' - This EVERGREEN climbing plant has been container grown so can be planted at any time of the year.

Key Information:  Product Code: ECP28

Name: Camellia x williamsii 'Anticipation' - This EVERGREEN climbing plant has been container grown so can be planted at any time of the year.

Description: Camellia x williamsii 'Anticipation' is a perfect addition to almost any garden and this variety is one of my favourites. 'Anticipation' produces the most gorgeous large, ruffled crimson peony flowers, which are double and up to 12 cm across! 'Anticipation' not only delights with these flowers in late winter and early spring but produces them freely from November to May. This Camellia also has compact dense bright green glossy leaves and being evergreen is a real bonus when planted in a patio pot and used as a specimen plant which looks simply stunning. Versatility is the key word for this particular shrub as she can be planted in the mixed border where she will really brighten up the beds and give really good year-round interest too. This particular variety is great for coastal planting too. Camellias prefer part- shade, but some sun in order to give you the best flowers and 'Anticipation' is no exception. This fully-hardy evergreen Camellia is very easy to grow, and really low maintenance. When planting out simply add moss peat and a general fertilizer and remember not to plant any deeper than the existing level of the top of the root ball. For best long term performance ongoing all you then need to do is mulch with moss peat, or shredded bark - this will then allow the Camellia to have a lifespan probably longer than you - they have been known to have a life-span of up to 150 years!
