CAMELLIAS
**Camellia Flowering bush Camellia japonica
This is a very traditional garden plant in the American south, much desired by those of us who for too many years lived too far north to have one. Now that we are living in a warmer place, I became greedy for a camellia. Its flowers are lush and beautiful and its foliage is deep green and lovely as well.
I now have a pink one growing well in the back garden though it will be a long time before it is the plant I had in mind.
From: Japan, China and Korea
Planting and Growth: Camellias prefer a slightly acid soil with bright shade and a soil that remains moist, but drains excess moisture well. When happy, a camellia will grow up to be about 10 feet tall, but it will do so VERY slowly.

This is a rare and endangered variety of camellia that in truth does look like a cross between a camellia and an azalea.

Planting and Care: It is not likely you'll ever have one of these, but if you do or you have responsibility for caring for one of them here is what it prefers. Plant it in a mildly acidic soil in full sun or bright light. Make sure the soil is always moist, but never wet.
