Camellia Japonica Blood of China


One of the best of the red camellias, this is a moderate grower with glossy dark green leaves. 'Blood of China' provides a striking display of red color against dark green foliage in late spring with its profuse semi-double to peony-formed blooms. Camellias deserve a place in any garden for their neat, well-kept appearance and beautiful flowers.
