Description

Mid Season Bloom

Camellia 'Lady Laura' is an evergreen shrub offering year-round interest. Camellias are ranked as one of the very best flowering shrubs and bloom heavily for weeks when most flowering plants are going dormant. Camellia 'Lady Laura' sets large, pink double blooms with rose stripes, mid season. Borne in clusters, the flowers have a loose peony to rose form and make lovely indoor displays.

A Camellia japonica, also known as a Japanese camellia, 'Lady Laura' is a woody broadleaved shrub with an average, upright habit of handsome, leathery, glossy, dark green foliage and a slow growth rate. It is a perfect specimen, but grouped or massed, it creates gorgeous shrub borders, informal hedges, and screens, and it's a great background structure for landscapes and mixed beds.

Camellia 'Lady Laura' prefers dappled sun to part shade, consistently moist acidic, organically rich, well-drained soil with a slightly acidic pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Less sun tolerant but slightly cold hardier than Camellia sasanqua, Camellia japonica should be protected from direct afternoon sun and cold winds, and roots should be protected with an application of mulch.

Most camellias can grow into small trees reaching heights of 12 to 16 feet, but they can be pruned (after blooming) to maintain a height of 6 to 8 feet.
