'Desire' Camellia

Camellia japonica 'Desire'

This camellia is a great compact, evergreen shrub.

The 'Desire' camellia has a lovely formal double flower in shades of white merging into pink towards the edges of the petals. The compact habit of the plant makes it ideal for container pot growing.

The camellia desire is a very delicate, beautiful plant and flower, and brings fantastic colour into a winter garden emerging into spring.
