Camellia x vernalis

Theaceae
Evergreen, Shrubs

CAMELLIA

Native to eastern and southern Asia. There are over 3,000 named kinds, and the range in color, size, and form is remarkable. The genus includes the plant from which we get tea, but most garden plants are robust shrubs that flower in winter or spring.

 

Camellia x vernalis

Certain camellias once classed as sasanquas have been placed here because they bloom later, are often denser in growth, shinier in leaf, and have firmer-textured flowers. They are generally sold as sasanquas.

'Dawn'

Single to semidouble, small white flowers blushed pink. Dense, upright, hardy shrub to 9 ft. tall, 6 ft. wide.

'Hiryu'

Deep red, small, rose-form double blooms on a dense, upright plant about 9 ft. tall and 6 ft. wide.
