Camellia japonica 'Tama-no-ura'

Camellia japonica ‘Tama-no-ura’. The white margin may be better developed on earlier blooms and older bushes.

  1. It flowers early and grows slowly in my garden. The petals lose the white margin on the later blooms. It’s quite hardy and keeps its buds in frost. A pretty and useful little camellia. My plant is now about seven years old. Thanks for propagating it Jim.


    • There are two at Mt Edgcumbe, one in shade, the other in the open. I found a single seed on the latter in the autumn, which I have sown. Who knows, it might be interesting, always assuming it grows.
