Camellia japonica is a stunning specimen for milder gardens with glossy, dark-green, broadly elliptic, evergreen leaves accented with lovely, rose-like flowers in early spring. 'Chandleri Elegans' produces stunning candy pink flowers with pink anemone centres sometimes with bits of white in early to mid season. Flowers are 4-5 inches or more wide. It is an heirloom cultivar dating back to 1831. Camellias appreciate rich, acidic, moist, well-draining soils. Use in the light shady garden as an accent or specimen plant, a hedge, or an espalier, or in containers and as cut flowers. Somewhat deer resistant. Plant in a protected location in zone 7.
