Long Island Pink Camellia

Camellia x 'Long Island Pink'

SKU
07522
This selection is a reliable producer of lovely single pink flowers in mid-fall. The foliage may be the most beautiful of all hardy, fall-blooming Camellias, as its large leaves are dark green and highly polished. Foliage emerges bronze. Has a nice compact, upright habit. Works well as a hedge, specimen or container plant.
