Dwarf camellia variety
I am looking for a small variety of Camellia that wont get too big and will look good in a small front garden. I am going to put my next Camellia in the ground as I have already killed a Camellia in a pot by accidentally letting it dry out.

You are in Dublin with limy soil, so you will need to address that before planting camellia which needs acid soil.
The Williamsii kinds, such as 'Inspiration' or 'Debbie', are good, not too big and can be pruned after flowering to reduce or maintain size as necessary.
