More Information
Botanical Pronunciation kuh-MEE-lee-uh
Lore Camellias are native to eastern and southern Asia. C. japonica was imported into the Philippines but is native to China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. The genus Camellia was named by Carolus Linnaeus who named it for a Jesuit missionary Georg Kamel, who cultivated an important garden of local medicinal plants on the Philippine Island of Luzon in the 17th century. High Fragrance is a hybrid of C. japonica 'Mrs. Bertha A Harms' and the hybrid cross of fragrant C. x'Salab' x C. x'Scentuous'. It originated with James Finlay of Whangarei, New Zealand. Red camellias are a symbol of wealth and white Camellias signify loveliness. Camellias represent longevity and faithfulness and have long been a primary floral component in Asian weddings.
