What Camellia is this ?

RuprectMay 17, 2013

This Camellia in my garden is about 10 years old. It is a prostrate type and has not been pruned. I have lost the name tag. I want to purchase another one but nurseries have not been able to identify it. Can anyone assist ?

It looks like camellia sasanqua, not sure what variety.

The link below will take you to the American Camellia Society's Encyclopedia Page. Camellias are listed in alphabetical order. You can review the pictures in there to see all camellias whose bloom match yours. You can then click on the name to see more detailed information about that camellia.

Check camellia sinensis pictures to see if this one is a tea camellia. Did you buy this shrub or was in the ground already when you bought the house?

Here is a link that might be useful: Camellia Encyclopedia
