Camellia nitidissima
Large shrub requiring a warm, humid site in partial shade. The foliage has deeply indented veins which is quite different to most Camellias. The new growth is an attractive purple color. Best suited to woodland conditions. The soil must be well-drained soil and remain constantly damp. It produces the only yellow flowers known in the genus. In time, hybridizers are hoping to develop a new range of colors to include yellow, orange, apricot and peach.
