Camellia (C. japonica)

Camellia is one of the plants I already knew before moving here, because Papa had a beautiful camellia bush in his yard. I don't think I would recognize it just by its leaves, though. Some of the camellias here bloomed in the fall, and they're blooming again now. There are about 100-250 species of camellias, including the tea plant (C. sinensis). Most camellias grown for their flowers are hybrids or cultivars of Japanese camellia.
