Winter to Spring Flowering – Japonicas and Hybrids
The epitome of camellias the world over, japonicas represent everything that is wonderful of the genus – beautiful flowers, attractive foliage and a pleasing habit. It’s no coincidence that japonicas are the most popular of the camellia species, they represent the widest range in flower form, colour and size and make excellent aesthetic specimens.
Camellia hybrids are derived from the crossing of two or more camellia species to produce a new, and often improved variety. Camellia hybridists selectively choose parent plants with favourable characteristics to pass on, such as – mass flowering, fragrance, miniature blooms/leaves, hardiness etc. The famed williamsii hybrids are part of this species.
