Camellia japonica 'Plateau' (FEMME FATALE®) has glossy dark green leaves adorned with burgundy new shoots. These warm colours blend beautifully thanks to its upright, bushy growth. In spring, the striking and large dark red, double flowers appear and combine beautifully with the dark green and burgundy leaves. The plant grows to 120 cm high and 70 cm wide. As an evergreen shrub, FEMME FATALE® adds colour to the garden all year round. The plant is hardy enough for most climates (down to -12°C), can withstand sun but prefers semi-shade. The plant is bred by Dr Jiyin Gao from China. This Camellia is marketed by Snepvangers Tuinplanten B.V., Molenschot. Management is via Plantipp BV, IJsselstein, which also submitted the plant for novelty testing.
