Camelia Japonica Volunter
A gloriously ruffled Camellia, Camellia Volunteer™ was bred in New Zealand by Mark Jury, and named to honour volunteers everywhere. One look at the large deep pink-red flowers with their distinctive white edge, and it's easy to understand why it was chosen to appear on a postage stamp. A chance seedling, for which we all are forever grateful. A truly remarkable bloom like no other.
Camellias are members of the tea (Theaceae) family, and are native to the coast and mountain regions of eastern Asia. Camellia Volunteer™ grows into a tall shrub or small tree two metres high. The foliage is a glossy dark green and the flowers are produced from May to September.
