Camellia japonica 'Unryu' (Japanese Camellia)

Height: 8-10 feet
Spread: 4 feet
Light: Morning sun and afternoon shade
Soil: Amended well-drained soil
Description: “Unryu” means “dragon in the clouds” in Japanese and refers to the zig-zag pattern of the branches. Imagine a dragon climbing up to the sky. This unusual and rarely offered Camellia blooms in late winter with single-petaled light coral-pink flowers. The interesting zig-zag branching habit of this Camellia lends itself to specimen use. Plant in a large container or spot of prominence.
