Species Camellias remain true to their origins as their essential qualities are the same today as they were when the plants first evolved. In their natural habitat they form part of the under-canopy of large forests. For centuries the seeds of species Camellias have been harvested to produce cosmetic and culinary oil. The wood has been used for fuel as it makes a high grade charcoal and, of course Camellia sinensis was and still is used to make the drink that I personally can't function without: TEA!  

In the garden, Species Camellias offer you an incredibly hardy plant with graceful foliage, dainty blooms which are almost always fragrant and a growth structure which is very natural. They make excellent small evergreen trees when left to their own devices; equally they adapt well to any creative trimming you may wish to do.

Picture of Camellia Microphylla

CLICK TO ENLARGE..

Species. The term 'microphylla' means small leaves which exactly describes the foliage of this special Camellia. Fragrant, tiny, star-shaped, single white flowers with yellow stamens. Dense shrubby habit, suitable for hedging or border planting. Happiest in semi-shade and acid soil. Evergreen.

This species Camellia is one of the first Camellias to flower in the autumn. I first saw it in a friend's garden and knew it was a 'must have'. I enjoy it more every year as it is so rewarding yet easy to grow. Looks good even when not in flower.
