Japanese Camellias are large evergreen shrubs with leathery, glossy, oval-shaped evergreen leaves that stay deep green year-round.   Flower buds typically appear in clusters mid-summer and bloom in winter. The size of the flowers can be increased by removing all but one bud in a cluster.  Flower styles range from single to semi-double, double, and peony-like which attracts butterflies.  Best blooms occur in partial sun and acidic, well-drained soil.
