Camellia japnonica are by far the best known of the Camellia. These varieties can grow from a small shrub to a tree of approximately 3-4 meters. Flowering from early winter to late spring, they are excellent for the winter garden.
Japonicas will stand full sun, if cared for while establishing (watering and mulching over the summer) but are a little better with shade at some part of the day. Can be grown throughout NZ
* Varieites will vary with time of year and availability.
