Over the last 200 years, they have proven to be dependable additions to the southern landscape, where they grow and bloom with minimal care.

There are many species of Camellias, but the types commonly grown as landscape shrubs in Florida are Camellia japonica, Camellia sasanqua, and hybrids of these. Camellia japonica typically grows larger and has bigger leaves and flowers than Camellia sasanqua. Camellia reticulata, Camellia hiemalis, Camellia vernalis, and their hybrids are less commonly used in landscapes. The young leaves of another species, Camellia sinensis, are processed for tea, one of the world's most popular drinks.  Camellias in Tallahassee have become a standard of landscaping.

Some of the most common questions, such as, "when do camellias bloom?" and "how big do camellias grow?" are answered in the camellias section of our blog! Click HERE to see all sorts of great information about your camellias!
