My Camellia flowers never look like everyone elses (not certain that's a bad thing) always with the extra ruffles and frills in the middle, not sure why?🤔 #camellia #camellia-japonica #camelliaflower #spring #springflowers

There are different camellia forms. Single, double, anemone etc. Yours looks like anemone type camellia. I rarely see these ones in supermarkets, so yours must be a special one 💕"Camellias - All you Need to Know" https://www.gardenia.net/plant-variety/camellias-all-you-need-to-know

Thank you all very much, and thanks Urzsula for the link (very informative) Showing my ignorance as I didn't know there were different types of Camellia flower, this one was supposed to be be a standard open single petal jobby 😄 And thanks Mike, looking at yours, and reading the information I think you're spot on 👍 @oldgreyheron @ublaszko @flan1971 @juliesgarden @nej @debs69 @italydiva @hkyfvr @pelly @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

Well, after not liking the choice on offer, I bought bamboo canes and made a fan trellis for the Camellia, which has now been initially 'tied in' and think it should do fine. Pleased with the result, shape looks good #camellia #camellia-japonica #camelliaflower #springequinox #marchflowers

Afternoon, I love this Pink Camellia, she reliably flowers well every year, and steadily puts on growth, but therein lies the problem, the growth is so sporadic and all over the shop!! Photo does not show it too well, but the branches are going very which way but loose!! (Loved that film) Should I leave it? Train it? Prune it? #help #advice #camellia-advice

Personally I would just trim it to improve the shape. If you hard prune it probably won't flower for a couple of years 👍

comment
wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

I’d definitely cut the long loose branches back and give it a bit of umph 👌🏼

I don't have one to prune yet but I'd say give it a prune to shape it to your satisfaction. Its healthy it'll take it

I agree with Jane @pelly 👍 A light trim for now just to give it a better shape then see how the new growth develops over the next few months. 👍😘

Morning Ladies, thank you all very much for your help, had a Google as well (didn't know if they flowered on old or new) and ended up reading an article on Espalier training a Camellia...as the branches on this are quite long and form a very natural V-shape, I've ordered a fan trellis to train it against, and will see what happens 😃 @pelly @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom @lesliecole49 @jacaranda @joannie.a @charlotte
