Camellia x williamsii 'J. C. Williams'

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 williamsii

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

'J. C. Williams'

Medium single, cup-shaped flowers of purplish pink over very long season, from early to late. Vigorous, upright shrub to 8–15 ft. high and 8–10 ft. wide, with rather pendulous branches. Particularly good camellia for the Pacific Northwest.
