We’ve spent the last few years assembling a collection of species camellias, many of which are quite dainty, and very different from what most gardeners think of, when they hear the genus Camellia mentioned. Flowering today is Camellia euryoides, the camellia that looks like a Eurya, with small pendant white flowers. Eurya is an even more obscure genus in the Pentaphylacaceae family. It’s cousins include the genus, Cleyera, and Ternstroemia (the plant most people confuse with cleyera). Camellia euryoides hails from three mostly subtropical provinces of China (Guangdong, Fujian, and Jiangxi). Our garden specimen is now six years old.
