Camellias

Originated from Southern Asia.In New Zealand camellias are grown as ornamental plants for their flowers. Flowers are usually large and conspicuous, with the first flowers appearing in late winter.  Camellias can be grown in a shrub border, as a specimen in a pot, trained into espalier or as a hedge.
