Native Hibiscus. An ever increasing interest in native hibiscus has led to the horticultural development of a number of new cultivars which rival the exotic types in beauty and flower size.
Camellia 'Mine No Yuki' is a spreading large shrub with semi double beautiful white flowers and glossy green foliage. It has an arching and somewhat weeping habit, and is a dense grower. It is an early autumn flowerer, and they are prolific. It responds well to pruning and trimming to shape the plant. Once established camellias are very hardy and drought resistant, but they do need some care when young until they establish a good root system. A great hedging or screening plant, or as a lovely specimen. Can also be container grown. Good for sun and for part shade, mulch to conserve soil moisture and to deter weeds, and give a handful of complete fertiliser in autumn and spring.
