After our chain link fence was exposed by overzealous ivy trimmers, I decided to plant evergreens on our side so I didn’t have to rely on shared foliage for privacy. It took me a while to decide on a camelia because they are so slow growing, but the fact that they are so shade tolerant plus the beautiful dark foliage of this variety won me over. I think it will provide a nice contrast to the canadian hemlock and green aucubas next to it.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
