Camellia Montironi

Originating in Italy in 1850, this Camellia was the favourite variety of Coco Chanel, and we can understand why. A vigorous, upright grower with dark-green foliage, its classically-shaped porcelain-white blossoms are sometimes gently marbled with soft pink. Elegant and timeless!

Shade / Part Shade


Indoors: keep the plant inside in a cool room only when blooming, and water regularly. Outdoors: as an isolated specimen or in association with other acid-loving shrubs such as Azaleas, Magnolias or Rhododendrons. Patio or terrace: in a large container, or may be trained against a wall or trellis.


Ideally in partial shade, protected from cold winds. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball and half-fill it with an acid compost. Remove the plant from its container and thoroughly soak the root ball. Place the plant (not too deeply) in the hole. Finish adding the compost. Water well.


Water regularly during flowering and dry weather. Add a specialised fertiliser each spring. Takes well to pruning after blooming.
