Camellias: The Complete Guide to Their Cultivation and Use
Jennifer Trehane provides a complete, up-to-date guide to propagating and growing camellias for anyone interested in the genus - and in any part of the world. There is a strong emphasis on cultivation requirements, including full information on hardiness in varying climatic zones and guidance on growing camellias under glass. The origin of camellias in China and their spread into Europe, Australia and North America is fully covered, with precise but accessible botanic information. The bulk of the book is concerned with all aspects of cultivation, drawing upon the author's many years of experience managing the family nursery. The book also includes a discussion of suitable companion plantings for camellias, and is fully illustrated with camellias photographed in their natural habitat, as well as in a variety of garden environments.
