Camellia ‘Taylor’s Perfection’
Evergreen, Shrubs, Trees
Camellias grow over a wider latitude range along the West Coast than anywhere else. Typically loaded with white, pink, red, or variegated blooms during the cool season, many of these robust shrubs flower heavily when other bloom is scarce. Native to southern and eastern Asia, they are unscented except as noted.
Big C. japonica varieties are the most popular, with fall- and winter-flowering C. sasanqua varieties coming in second. All are classic understory shrubs that thrive in filtered shade. They also grow well in pots.
There are six camellia forms: Anemone, formal double, peony, rose-form double, single, and semidouble.Camellia ‘Taylor’s Perfection’
