One of our favourite plants to espalier, Merrywood grow a range of Sasanqua, Japonica and some Hybrid camellias. Our espalier camellias are available in a variety of sizes, from 25cm and 33cm pots with fan shaped lattice, to 50cm pots with square black lattice and a limited number of our special releases, such as our diamond lattices and formal shapes.
Sasanqua Camellias are the first to flower each year. Flowering in autumn they tend to have a smaller flower and leaf than the Japonica which enables them to tolerate a sunnier, more exposed position.
Japonicas have the widest range of flower size, form and colour. They flower in winter and have shiny large leaves and flourish in a shaded to semi-shaded position.
Hybrid Camellias come from crossing two or more species of camellia together to produce a new variety. We grow several of the Williamsii Hybrids which are part of this group and have been bred to withstand a wider range of conditions. Hybrids flower from winter into spring.
