Camellia's come in a range of single to double blooms as well as a variety of colours, ranging from deep pinks and reds through to pretty light pink, cream and white. Camellias with exposed stamens are adored by bees and camellia flowers can also attract birds.
Japonica Camellia (C. japonica)
This Camellia can grow up to 4 to 5 metres in height and has deep green larger leaves that produce an array of flowers (double, single) in late autumn to early spring.
Sasanqua Camellia (C. sasanqua)
Widely used as a hedging plant but can grow and form into a small tree from 2-8 metres in height. Single or double flowers are produced from mid summer to mid-winter.
Tea Plant (C.sinesis)
Grown for the leaf tips rather than the flower form. Small shrub that can grow to around 2 metres in height. Small white flowers appear in autumn to spring. New leaves and buds are harvested to use as tea (white, green and black).
