Sizing guide

Espalier plants are excellent in narrow garden beds, or can be used as feature plants to screen areas. Trimmed to a narrow, bushy shape they can give a beautiful formal appearnce to your garden.

Espalier Camellia is a technique where Camellia plants are trained to grow flat against a wall or trellis, creating a decorative, space-saving garden feature. This method highlights the plant’s attractive flowers and glossy evergreen foliage while adding structure and interest to the garden.

To espalier a Camellia, start with a young plant. Choose a sunny to partially shaded location with well-draining, acidic soil. Install a sturdy support structure, such as a trellis or horizontal wires on a wall. Plant the Camellia close to the support. As it grows, gently bend and tie the branches to the support, training them to grow horizontally or in a desired pattern. Use soft ties to avoid damaging the branches.

Prune regularly to maintain the shape and remove any unwanted growth. Water consistently, especially during dry periods, and mulch to retain soil moisture and protect the roots. Fertilize annually with a balanced, acidic fertilizer to promote healthy growth and abundant blooms.

Espalier Camellia creates an elegant, space-efficient display, perfect for small gardens, courtyards, or as a decorative element on walls and fences.
