Camellia x williamsii 'Donation' Plants

Camellias are attractive time tested plants. Camellia x williamsii compounds are the hardest and simplest to grow, and the best for growing in most landscapes. 'Donation' is one of the most popular of all camellias, and totally efficient. It is a strenuous plant with stunning semi-double flowers, rich light red and fresh. Day sunshine on the pals in freezing weather can damage them, and where springtime freeze very severe, or where dirt are inappropriate, plants may be grown in large bins of lime-free rich compost water with rainfall water.
