There are numerous species of Camellia (ツバキ属) but the Camellia types commonly grown as landscape shrubs are Camellia sasanqua (山茶花), Camellia japonica, and hybrids of these. Camellia sasanqua is one of the loveliest fall flowers, graceful in form, tender in color and pleasing in fragrance. As summer fades and the leaves begin to turn, this camellia opens, with aplomb, the camellia season. Depending on the selection and where you live, sasanqua Camellias can bloom anytime from late summer through fall and into winter.
