Description

  • Evergreen shrub
  • Dark pink flowers in spring
  • Good for shady gardens

Camellia japonica ‘Princess Bachiocchi’ is an evergreen shrub with fabulous spring colour. Beautiful dark pink double flowers appear in early or late spring, depending on the weather, and are a good early nectar source for pollinators. This attractive shrub provides excellent evergreen structure in a shady spot, with its glossy green leaves setting off other flowering plants.

Plant Camellia ‘Princess Bachiocchi’ in a shady spot, in a moist, well drained acidic soil. Avoid east-facing positions, as the buds may be damaged by late frosts. Water in dry periods, especially in summer when the following year’s flower buds are developing.

How you will receive your plants: 

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a pot, ready to plant out. 

Can’t plant straight away? 

Place the pot in a sheltered spot outdoors and water regularly to keep the soil moist. 

Planting in the ground: 

Dig a hole slightly wider than the rootball of the plant. Place the plant in the hole so that it sits at the same level in the ground as it did in the pot. When backfilling, mix in a soil improver such as well-rotted farmyard manure. Firm the soil around the plant and water well. 

Planting in containers: 

Choose a pot with good drainage holes. Place stones or crocks (bits of broken pottery) at the bottom of the pot to stop the drainage holes clogging up. Use a good quality compost. Feed and water container-grown plants regularly.
