THE CAMELLIA CARAMBA PRE-ORDER 33 exquisite cultivars for pick-up (or shipping) in March/April 2024
PLEASE DO NOT MIX PRE-ORDERS: The plants in each pre-order are only available for shipping or pick-up during a specific period each year. Orders for each pre-order must be placed separately from other pre-orders and our Main Catalogue. Please do not place mixed orders*. Welcome to the second year of the Camellia pre-order celebrating this wonderful fall-, winter-, and spring-blooming evergreen shrub or tree. Camellias have long inspired gardeners with their exquisite and varied single, semi-double, and double flowers in shades of white, pink, coral, red, and yellow plus bicolours. The sasanqua types begin to bloom in the fall and continue through winter with delicate, fragrant flowers. The larger-flowered japonica types begin to bloom in late winter and early spring. Some hybrids bloom in the middle of winter. They are an amazing group of woody plants to keep colour going in the garden or on the patio when few other plants are blooming - except perhaps hellebores which make a great underplanting! While most Camellia are hardy to just zones 7 and 8, a few are hardy into zone 6. In colder zones they can be grown in a cool greenhouse or sunroom protected from freezing. Have fun!
Available for: Pick-Up or Shipping. We recommend this pre-order for customers who can pick up. However, it is possible to ship both 2 gallon and 5 gallon pots across Canada. Please be advised that our system may not be able to properly calculate the shipping costs for such a large item and additional shipping charges may be required. We can also arrange courier shipping within Metro Vancouver or freight shipping across Canada on pallets for larger orders.
Estimated Date: Pick-ups begin in March. Shipping will take place in March and April as weather allows in your area. Plant Details: Most plants are in five gallon pots and will be about 2.5-3 feet tall. We have seven cultivars available in 2 gallon pots. These will be about 1.5-2 feet tall. At this time smaller sizes are not available however we hope to add them in the future to the pre-order or the main catalogue. Cancellations and Changes: Once plants are ordered, they are reserved for you and can’t be sold to anyone else. We view your order as a commitment you have made with us in good faith. For this reason, cancellations for full refund will only be accepted until February 1st, 2024. After that date you can choose to cancel for a refund minus a 25% restocking fee or cancel for a full store credit. Additions can be made at any time by placing a new order. Notify us when you pick up that you have multiple orders. Or if you require shipping, notify us by email when you place additional orders to link your orders in our system. Orders that are not picked up are returned to general inventory after four weeks. We will refund the order minus a 25% restocking fee.
*Mixed orders will be charged an administrative fee of $5 per pre-order/main catalogue order to cover our costs of separating and organizing your orders. As a rule, all pre-orders ship separately due to timing and different packing requirements. In some cases we may be able to combine some pre-orders to ship together if you send us a detailed email listing all of your orders. While we will do our best, we cannot guarantee that any pre-orders will ship together.
