In ancient mythology the Camellia symbolises love and devotion.
This beautifully gift wrapped Camellia has glossy leaves all year and flowers which blossom in late winter with a gorgeous fragrance that is loved by bees and butterflies.
This Camellia will happily thrive in any garden, it also looks fabulous on a balcony or in a cool conservatory. When you place your order a beautiful Camellia will be freshly selected by our devoted gardeners here, before being wrapped and placed in its luxury parcel.
An exclusively designed card with your personal message, the story of the Camellia's ancient symbolism and a full care guide is also enclosed with your gift. Add an engraved brass plaque (see images) inscribed with your message so this special gift is always remembered.

Caring for your tree
Every Camellia is growing in its organic pot filled with top-notch compost, so no green fingers are required, just natural daylight and water. We have added special nutrients to your Camellia’s compost to create the perfect balance of nourishment. This organic goodness will slowly release into the soil to ensure your tree continues to flourish.
In a few weeks, plant your Camellia, still in its organic pot, in a large flower pot (one with holes so excess water can drain away) or in a sunny spot in the garden. Read our blog on How to plant your tree in a pot here.
This Camellia is approximately 50cm high, it is quite happy to be lightly pruned in early spring and will reach a height of 2 metres in 10 years, if allowed to grow naturally.
Your parcel travels in a clear eco bag so the couriers and recipients are aware a living tree is inside it and must be opened as soon as possible.
