Laura Walker Camellia Japonica
Camellia japonica 'Laura Walker'

Laura Walker camellia produces dazzling, semi-double to anemone form, bright-red blooms on compact shrubs with upright growth. Some flowers will have white variegation on the petals. Blooms usually begin to appear in mid to late winter and continue to early or mid spring.  

Camellia prefer a well-drained acidic soil that is rich in organic matter. Constantly soggy soil is a slow killer. In general, Camellia grows and blooms better in partial shade with shelter from hot afternoon sun. Morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sunlight is perfect. All-day filtered sun is fine.
