How long does it take a newly planted camellia to bloom?
I just planted two, Kanjiro and Shishi Gashira, to brighten up a dark corner of my house. A year and a half ago I planted another called In The Pink in another half-shade location. It is quite healthy looking with dark green, glossy leaves, but has grown slowly and has never formed flowers. Should I be patient, or is it planted in too shady a spot? To let you know what age plants I am describing, I should let you know that all three were purchased at the one gallon size.
I have a second question about the two I just planted. Based on nothing but the information I found on the tags, I think I have selected two camellias that will give me extended bloom; that one will pick up at about the time the other stops. Is this right?
