Species Camellias remain true to their origins as their essential qualities are the same today as they were when the plants first evolved. In their natural habitat they form part of the under-canopy of large forests. For centuries the seeds of species Camellias have been harvested to produce cosmetic and culinary oil. The wood has been used for fuel as it makes a high grade charcoal and, of course Camellia sinensis was and still is used to make the drink that I personally can't function without: TEA!
In the garden, Species Camellias offer you an incredibly hardy plant with graceful foliage, dainty blooms which are almost always fragrant and a growth structure which is very natural. They make excellent small evergreen trees when left to their own devices; equally they adapt well to any creative trimming you may wish to do.

A personal favourite of mine is Camellia Roseflora which has exquisite little shell pink blossoms that float gently to the ground and land upright ensuring their beauty can be admired as they gently fade away. Camellia Transnokoensis is another firm favourite with its tiny pointed bright pink buds that open to exquisite single flowers that are blush white. The flowers are produced en masse and have a delightful fragrance.
If you are keen to have Camellias in your garden (and why wouldn't you be) then it is well worth considering a Species Camellia for its enduring, understated beauty.
