Camellia Lavinia Maggi has large formal double flowers that should bloom from February to April. The overlapping petals are white with irregular cerise-pink stripes and are very beautiful. The Lavinia flower grows to a height from 2.5m – 4m with a spread of 2.5m – 4m.
Cultivation: Suitable for woodland and acidic soils. Position in a site sheltered from cold, dry winds and early morning sun as buds and flowers may be damaged by cold winds and late frosts.
Propagation: Propagate by semi-hardwood cuttings.
Suggested planting locations and garden types: Flower borders and beds cut flowers, low maintenance, Wall-side borders, city & courtyard gardens, cottage & informal garden, patio & container plants
Pruning: Can be pruned after flowering to the shape one requires.
Garden care: Protect the emerging buds and the Lavinia flowers from cold, dry winds and early morning sun. Water established plants in dry weather to prevent bud drop. Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser in mid-spring and again in June. Top-dress annually with shredded bark or well-rotted leaf mold. After flowering lightly trim or prune any branches that spoil the appearance of the plant.
The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.
