Old or Heritage Camellias site/forum

varmi(WA Aust)August 16, 2005

I am particularly interested in old camellias and wonder if anyone could point me in the right direction. I have fond memories of growing up with large gorgeous camellias, I used to pick them with my mother. We used to often visit an old man who had 7 ft camellias of deep pink and white. I hope to try some that date back around the 50's and earlier if they still exist. I am hoping to seek out these types for my own garden.

Many thanks in advance
