Camellia yunnanensis

16th November 2013

A large shrub or small tree with white flowers from Yunnan and Sichuan. I bought it as a seedling and it has grown slowly.

And then it started to grow rapidly and I had to cut it back in order to get it out of the greenhouse and planted. I still don't know if it is hardy but there has been nothing in its behaviour so far to suggest that it isn't. I have planted it in the shelter of a west facing wall, or to put it another way, in the first available space.
