I've been trying to get this camellia going for three years. My patience is about up with it. It looks promising for a while, with several buds in late winter, but the buds fall off before they come to flower. It's in a rather sheltered part-sun spot, with decently fertile soil, and yet it remains as nothing but a sad looking plant. My suggestion is to go with a better known cultivar.
