Camellia hybrids are particular combinations offering the very best attributes of Camellia japonica, sasanqua and reticulata. They provide the modern gardener with exquisite flower, form, foliage and often a hint of fragrance.
Many new releases in the Camellia world are hybrids, some of which have been bred right here in New Zealand. We currently have 50 Camellia hybrids to choose from. They range from "Quintessence" which has a low, spreading habit, making it ideal for pots and baskets to the showy upright "Dreamboat" that has large, gay, frilly double blooms of brightest pink and just about every variance in-between.
