Models of Camellia

Camellia broadleaved

A evergreen shrub, which may grow to a height of 25 feet, but more often to 6 to 12 feet. It has a spread of 6 to 10 feet. The dark-green leathery leaves are 4 inches long. The flowers, which range in color from white to pink and red, are 3 to 5 inches in diameter. They flower on different varieties from September until April. The flowers may be single, semi-double, or double.

Camellia sasanqua

  A broad-leaved evergreen shrub, varying in form from upright and densely bushy to low and spreading. Heights range from 1?to 12 feet tall. The leaves are dark green, shiny and about 2 inches long. They are usually darker green and smaller than the leaves of C. japonica or C. reticulata. The flowers are mostly white and single, 2 to 3 inches in diameter, and very fragrant.

Camellia oleifera

A large shrub to 20 feet tall with glossy, dark green leaves and fragrant, 2-inch-wide flowers in fall.

Camellia reticulata

Has some of the biggest and most spectacular flowers, but is a rather gaunt and open shrub, about 10 feet tall and 8 feet wide. This species is very susceptible to cold. Mild frost will kill the plant. C. reticulata hybridized with C. japonica or C. salvenensis results in excellent hybrids.

Camellia japonica

  Typically large, thick glossy dark green.All varieties eventually grow to 10 feet or more, but with regular pruning most can be kept under 8 feet tall.
Azalea soil - acid, moist but well-drained and with plenty of humus.Plants will need some shade, particularly in the afternoon, but constant shade may severely reduce blooms.

Camellias grow very slowly. They can grow to be quite old. Some hundred-year-old plants may reach 25 feet high or more and as wide, but most gardeners can consider camellias to be 10-foot-tall shrubs. Many are even lower growing. C. sasanqua varieties are faster growing than C. japonica.


Camellias are used as specimen large shrubs, shrub borders and screens. The main ornamental feature is their showy flowers.


Camellias need well-drained soil rich in organic material for establishment. Because camellias are slow-growers, they are slow to get established. Competition for water is the one critical thing in establishment. They thrive and bloom best when sheltered from full sun and drying winds. Older camellia plants can thrive in full sun when they are mature enough to have their roots shaded by a heavy canopy of leaves.

Camellias can be planted any time of the year (preferably from mid-October to November and from mid-March to mid-April) provided they are properly planted and mulched and checked for water frequently. Camellias are shallow-rooted plants. They must be planted shallowly. It is recommended to dig a large, deep planting hole to cut the roots of neighboring trees, which will otherwise compete for water with the newly planted camellia. Also remove stones and break up heavy clay soils. Partially fill the hole with loose soil before planting the camellia shallowly.

Soil moisture should be conserved by using a 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch. Camellias prefer a slightly acid soil and light applications of acid plant food may be used to maintain dark-green, attractive foliage. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer label. Do not use more than called for. Burned leaf edges and excessive leaf drop usually indicate overfertilizing.

Some flower bud dropping may be a natural phenomenon. Many camellias set more buds than they can open. Bud drop can be caused by underwatering in the summer.

Camellias require very little pruning except for the removal of damaged branches and long shoots that detract from the attractive form of the shrub. Cutting back severely (no leaves left) can be done safely from Valentine Day to around May 1. Cutting out the dead and weak stems can be done anytime.


Camellia japonica varieties: Following is a list of C. japonica varieties that are old standbys. The listing specifies bloom season and flower size. The earliest types start blooming in November in the Low country, while late varieties still have flowers in May. Very large flowers are over 5 inches in diameter, large are 4 inches, medium are 3 inches, small are 2 inches or less across.

Camellia Oil Character

lCamellia oil contains the vitamins, A, B, E. It also includes various minerals such as Phosphorus (P), Calcium (Ca), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), and Magnesium (Mg). a mix of nutritional vitamins and proteins to help maintain the nature of the skin, and to prevent formation of such skin disorders as wrinkles, spots, freckles, and acne.

lAccording to English imperial family free hospital medical school (The Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine) With Cambridge University (University of Cambridge) Research, camellia tea (Camellia Sinensis - also known as tea) Has the auxiliary antibiotic (antibiotics) With kills the bacterium the effect.

The camellia tea may prevent some thin mold mushroom spawns (bacteria Strains) For example: Staphylococcus (Staphylococcus) The manufacture produces the resistance antibiotic protein (protein) . Some bacteria can a cell wall (cell wall) Strengthens arrives Keeps off the antibiotic, but the camellia tea may make the disturbance to this kind of response . In addition, researcher also discovered this kind of tea may kill one kind to be called "Staphylococcus aureus" Staphylococcus, this germ All has nearly to all antibiotics resists the ability, the medical arena called it is " Super bacterium " (superbugs)

This image show the very long and pointed apertures or culpi on this pollen grain.  This is an equatorial view of the pollen grain, and its elliptical shape can be classified as Non angular - Elliptic - Truncate*.  The surface of the pollen grain does not have an obvious pattern of any kind, and it does not have any outstanding sculptures, therefore its fine structure can be classified as granulate (which means that it looks granulated because its fine structure is too small to view even with the SEM).

This image shows a polar view of the pollen grains.  It is clear from this image that there are three of the very long and pointed apertures equidistantly arranged along the equator of the pollen grain.  This type of grain is therefore a trizonocolpate.  The shape from its polar view is that of a triangle with rounded ends and I therefore classified it as Angular - Triangular - Obtuse - Convex*.

Camellia Oil

Camellia Oil takes from the source had been born in the subtropics region tree seedIs the camellia seed after the oil press by . The camellia for  is often green , after the procedure which the common camellia seed can play the role of fries again extracts oilPlays the role of the oil color which fries more for a long time extracts to be deeperAlso the fragrance is thickerBut not prolonged fries the seed extracts a color paler oilComparatively does not have the fragranceBut the nutrition ingredient is higher.

Camellia Oil includes enriches the protein, vitamin A, E and so on,its nutritional value and to high temperature stability superiorly with to yellow soybean oil, even may compare favorably with with the Chinese olive oil phase, has the high anti- oxidized matter, lets the skin hair be at the good condition, can let the flesh adjustment and guarantee , the permeability is quick, can use to the whole body flesh it can form very thin protective film on the epidermis, preserves in the skin the moisture, protects the ultraviolet ray and air pollution to the flesh damage.
Camellia Oil may prevent the free radical production, the prevention gets older the dual effect causes the flesh to unfold the elasticity under, prevented because has exhaustedly caused the trace which spontaneous or the non- spontaneous function left behind is unable to eliminate.

Camellia Oil already used by mainland China and Japan's female many centuries, prematurely prevented the flesh to appear the wrinkle the nutritious oil used, simultaneously also was the hair is nutritious.
