Camellia japonica 'Professor Sargent'

Professor Sargent Camellia is an evergreen shrub with beautiful red peony flowers beginning in late February to mid March and a vigorous, care free growth habit. This selection has abundant and prolonged flowering. I is a good selection for the shaded shrub border, container gardening in warmer climates, as a specimen, and for cut flowers.
