Camellia, Tea-oil

Two species of Camellia are commonly grown in American gardens. They are Camellia japonica and Camellia sasanqua. There are countless varieties of each. This less well-known species has less glossy leaves than most other Camellias but nice cinnamon colored bark. Flowers are 3" white, single, and appear in fall. It produces seed which is processed for oil. One of the most cold-hardy Camellia species and has been used to breed hardy hybrids. Like other Camellias it should have a semi shady location with well-drained soil which is preferably sandy and slightly acid. It is native to China.
