Genus Description Camellia is a genus of over 250 species of long-lived, evergreen shrubs and small trees, 3 to 70 feet tall, native to Asia. The usually glossy, mid-to-dark green leaves are simple, alternate, and lance-shaped, with toothed margins. They are popular for their bold foliage and abundance of showy, white, pink, red, (or rarely) yellow flowers. It was named for G. J. Camellus (1661-1706), a Jesuit missionary who brought it to Europe from Asia. Tea, Camellia sinensis, also belongs to this genus.
Care Tips
Cultivation Pink Snow prefers slightly acidic soils. Sasanqua camellias can take much more sun than the japonica varieties.
Pests and Diseases Canker, dieback, viruses, root rot, algal leaf spot, and anthracnose can be troublesome. Other problems include bud and spider mites, scale insects, weevils, planthoppers, and sometimes aphids. Sooty mold frequently grows on droppings from scale insects and aphids.
