And the Band Played On

We love camellias, but we really love the amazing banded leaf, variegated camellias, of which we’ve assembled a decent collection. Here is our plant of Camellia japonica ‘Taiyo’ in the garden now, which is just absolutely striking.

  1. Hopefully you’ll be making this and other variegated-leaf camellia’s available for sale? (CamForest doesn’t seem to be propagating many variegated-leaf camellia’s in the past, e.g., Camellia japonica ‘Kerguelen.’)

    1. I doubt we’ll offer camellias, as there is too high a probability that we’d get carried away. In addition to Camellia Forest, another local nursery, Garden Treasures, who also grows many variegated camellias, has plans to start selling mail order this year.

      1. Funny, I did look at them of course but their website discouraged me and I gave up. Will give them another try. Thanks again
