Camellia that drops blooms naturally...

Posted by rosewest z8 OR (My Page) on

I'm looking for a heavy blooming, very early or winter blooming large bloomed red camellia that drops its blooms naturally when they're done blooming, rather than turning brown and staying on the tree as so many camellias are prone to do. I saw one outside a business today that was red and white bi-color and it was gorgeous. I asked the receptionist if she knew the variety and she said she didn't. I'd like to find one similar, though I'd like one that blooms a little earlier than now...The blooms dropping naturallly is the key thing I'm looking for...

Thanks in advance for your responses.

RE: Camellia that drops blooms naturally...

I used to have a (japonica) Eleanor McCown that cleaned itself up until the dogs killed it looking for squirrels. This is a short list of others that are bicolor and that you can investigate if the clean up by themselves: Sherri's Jubilee, Bev Piet's Smile, White Eighteen Scholars, Peppermint, Betty Foy Sanders, Governor Mouton, etc Many are very difficult to find nowadays.

White by the Gate this year cleaned up pretty well too. The only blooms I had to clean where those that fell on top of other branches. A new Kanjiro that I bought at good prices was blooming late and slef cleaned the two blooms that it still had.

Many commercial entities have a landscaping company that does their plants. If they are still engaging the company that planted the camellia, you could tracce the plant down.
