Camellia (Camellia Japonica), Beautiful Flowers


The Camellia (Camellia Japonica) is a hardy shrub with dark green glossy leaves. It is native to China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan.   Their beautiful flowers make them popular throughout the world in almost every country.



Camellia Plant Care


Camellias grow upright to about 4 feet tall and will spread; they need space for air ventilation to avoid scale insects. They like partial shade, acidic and well-drained soil. Also, they are poor in salt tolerance. Too dry or over watering may cause the leaves and flower buds to fall off. If it is infected with insects, the leaf is spotted and the discoloration will spread to the flowers.  To help plants grow well, it is recommended to fertilize them every two months.  The best time to prune is after flowering. Once the shrub is matured it is a long lived plant.


Beautiful Flowers of Camellia


Camellia flowers are beautiful.  They bloom as early as January to as late on June; this also depends on the type of plant. There are varieties of them ranging from a single flower with few petals, or some may be double with many layers of petals. Some flowers are white, red, pink, or mixed color and the flowers will last for a week. They are commonly used for corsages, flower cuttings and as an ornamental for your garden.

Ho Kwee,

I love Camelias and they smell so wonderful. I like to cut them and float them in water during parties. Thanks for sharing.

I love your reports on the different trees, shrubs and flowering plants in your area. Keep up the great work. Do you know anything about growing orchids? I don't. I think I killed my orchid plant. While I don't know anything about tropical plants, I do know a ton about growing herbs and veggies. Growing culinary and medicinal herbs is a passion of mine.

Kwee, beautiful flower, and looks similar to the rose, but the leaves of the bush are different.  Wish we could smell them!
