Rosea Camellia is a compact evergreen shrub with an upright habit and glossy leaves that stay dark green year-round.  The small lightly scented pink flowers with yellow stamen bloom from early fall into winter which attracts butterflies.  Best blooms occur in partial sun and acidic, well-drained soil.  Rosea is best trained as an espalier, as it can by 'floppy' if self-standing.
