One of the very best hedging Camellias. Strong and vigorous, upright, bushy growth and a mass of medium-sized, deep rose flowers (with a silvery streak through the petals), from March and well into winter.
Although Hiryu will take full sun, some shade is preferred in Canberra to protect from the hottest, scorching sun.
Soil must be very well prepared with plenty of Healthy Earth Instant Clay Breaker and Martin's Planting Compost.
Plant 1m apart.
