Camellia japonica 'Anita'

 

'Anita' camellia japonica's flower is a surprise from one bud to the next.  Primarily light pink with red stripes, bloom variation can change due to a "jumping" gene. Vigorous and upright growth, this japonica blooms February to March, semi-double bloom.

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting any Camellia as they prefer fall planting with less watering than you might think. In NC our soil is clay so we prefer to use pine bark soil conditioner when planting Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, and Azalea.
