Plant details

Cornish Snow' is a compact growing shrub with lots of small fragrant single white blooms, with masses of bright yellow stamens. Like all camellias it makes an attractive shrub for a sheltered spot. Plants grow best with the protection of a wall and away from early morning sunlight, which can damage the buds during cold weather. It requires acid soil to thrive so grow in pots of ericaeceous (lime-free) compost if your soil is unsuitable.
