Camellia japonica 'Optical Illusion' Camellia X 'Peter Pan' Camellia X 'Peter Pan'

climate such as Florida or California. The plant will take some freezing but flower buds are quite tender. A strong plant with
thin light green leaves.
1 year old plant = 2 quart pot. This one has striking shading from cream white at the base of the flower to cerise pink at the edges with orchid overtones. The semi-double to peony form flowers bloom mid to late season. Zone 7 2 year old plant = 1 gallon pot.

(zone 7a-9)- The small bright rose-red single flowers are produced early in the season. The new foliage is bronze-red. This is a very vigorous and disease resistant variety. The sepals are red, so the flower buds are deep red all winter as they gradually elongate and mature. The buds look like red candles. The heavily budded plants rival azaleas in full bloom and are months ahead. The vegetative and floral hardiness is excellent--even after nights in the low 20's, the open flowers still have good color. The plant has upright growth and will be full in good light exposure.

1 year old plant. This very large flower has variable flower forms from semi-double to anemone or peony and the color is an intense red with an orange cast. The plant has very large leaves and an open and vigorous growth habit. The bloom is in mid-season. This epitome of a big red show flower actually will grow outdoors in central NC but the floral display is disappointing. The plant seems to be hardy to zone 7 but the flower buds are not so hardy.
