Camellia • Camellia • ツバキ • 椿 • tsubaki
We have some japonicas which names we know, and quite a few only identified as ‘camellia japonica’. This post will store their pics and locations, should some camellia expert come along and give them proper names.
From Missouri Botanical Garden: […] Culture: In its native areas of China, Korea, Taiwan and Japan, the camellia flourishes in shaded or semi-shaded positions, and sheltered in cold climates.
[…] Noteworthy Characteristics: Japanese camellia is best known for its lovely white, red, pink or variegated flowers, two to five inches across, blooming from fall to spring in warmer areas and in early spring in cooler areas. A compact growing habit, glossy green foliage and a showy profusion of bloom account for the wide popularity of this large, handsome, long-lived shrub.
