Camellia x 'Crimson Candles'
Red, elongated flower buds gave 'Crimson Candles' it's name. Bright, rose-red flowers line up along each branch, giving it showy appeal that rivals any azalea in full bloom; and it does so months before! This plant has excellent hardiness in both the foliage and flowers, performs best with plenty of sunlight, and is an excellent choice for outdoor screening. A Camellia Forest introduction, 1995.
