Our Camellias

Striving to bring you showy, garden-worthy plants, we work to offer exceptional flowers, vigorous growth, cold-hardiness, disease resistance and one-of-a-kind Camellias. New plants include our own introductions from our breeding program, older varieties that have proven to have good qualities and recent introductions from other breeders. We try to offer Camellias that represent the wide variation in the genus: from small and simple-flowered to a myriad of wild forms and large, many-petaled hybrids.

SIZES AND PRICES

Camellias are quite variable in growth rate in pots. Slower growers may be smaller than the sizes listed but an approximate guide for ordering plants is as follows:

Seedlings tea plant cost $12 and are 4 to 10 inches tall in 1 quart pots.

1 year old plants cost $16 and are 6 to 18 inches tall in 1 or 2 quart pots.

2 year old plants cost $27 and are 12 to 30 inches tall in 1 gallon pots.

3-4 year old plants cost $60 and are 18 to 42 inches tall and bushy in 3 gallon pots.

We generally keep the Camellias in relatively small pots to avoid waterlogged soil and poor root growth. We strive to grow plants with healthy root systems which adjust well to being planted outdoors. I do not disturb the roots when planting unless a large thickened root has begun to circle in the pot; I have found that the many small roots rapidly grow out into surrounding soil and do not cause problems in later years.

Camellia  oleifera 'Lushan Snow'
Camellia oleifera 'Lushan Snow'
Our Price: $16.00


This is one of the selections of Camellia oleifera used by Dr. Ackerman for introducing cold hardiness into Camellia plants. The original plant is located in Asian Valley at the National Arboretum and is a multi-trunked tree over 25 feet tall and spreading 45 feet. It is worth seeing during any season as the bark is a powdery cinnamon color, with numerous white flowers produced in the fall.

Camellia chekiangoleosa
Camellia chekiangoleosa
Our Price: $16.00

This Chinese species is closely related to C. japonica, but it has larger flowers and can have a distinct orange-red hue in the flowers.The flowers are single with a large boss of yellow anthers and bloom from late winter into early spring. Reports from this country indicate this is species is quite cold-hardy, possibly into Zone 6. This is a showy species, which deserves to be used widely in the landscape and hybridized to push the limits of camellias. Often large apple-sized fruits are produced and the seeds can be pressed to make high-quality oil for cooking. (Zone 7a) [2 quart pot]
