Crapnell Camellia

Two species of Camellia are commonly grown in American gardens. They are Camellia japonica and Camellia sasanqua. There are countless varieties of each. Many varied and quite different species of Camellia occur in the Far East and Woodlanders is one of the few nurseries making these available to American gardeners. Camellias are best in semi-shade in sandy slightly acid soil which is kept mulched and watered. This species has rather large dark green leaves and white single floweres with yellow staymens in early spring. It is notable for the beautiful cinnamon colored trunks and large seed pods the size of an orange.   Native to China
