Text sheet: This distinct species of Camellia is a native of Nepal: it was introduced, we believe, by Mr. Brookes, in 1825. In growth it is rather lax, with many long branches, soon attaining the height of five or six feet. It flowers during the autumnal months, and requires protection in the same manner as the other kinds. The blossoms are less conspicuous than most of them. It is usually increased by engrafting upon the single Camellia Japonica, which forms a very suitable stock for it."Text sheet included.
