Short, slow growing Camellia cultivar, Bonanza is often used even as a ground cover, so short it can be (reaching around 1.5 meter tall at most). It is also spreading, demanding a lot of room for such a small plant (12 ft. across). It has a shiny, dark and leathery foliage. The flowers are medium sized, semi double, and red. There are red petaloids in the center mixed with the stamens.

It is hardy and will not tolerate high temperatures. It goes well both in light shade and full sun, with regular watering - I read that it is drought tolerant too.
