Camellia x williamsii ‘Brigadoon’

Theaceae
Evergreen, Shrubs

CAMELLIA

Native to eastern and southern Asia. There are more than 3,000 named kinds of camellias, 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 williamsii

This is a cross between C. japonica and a variable species from China.

‘Brigadoon’

Vigorous upright shrub with rather pendulous branches. Very large, semidouble flowers are rich pink with a hint of silver, produced in spring. Grows 8 ft. high and wide; can eventually reach 15 ft. high and 10 ft. wide.
