Camelias ,but have not found one yet.



Have you tried your local library? I find them the best source of information. Plus, if the book is not very good, I've not wasted my money.

What about, have you tried that? They are usually much cheaper if you do want to buy a book. Good luck!

The book you want is called "What Camellia is That" written by Stirling Macoboy. ISBN 1-86302-571-5. It has over 1000 illustrated entries. Good luck.

It certainly does, in fact it gives you everything you need to know about all Camellias, including species. My favourites are the Reticulata's which I am slowly building up a collection of. With the new hybrids being bred in Australia and California the day is not too far away when they will be as popular as the Rose, especially with the new scented hybrids coming through like "Cinnamon Cindy" etc.

I have a set of Readers Digest Garden books, the series is called "Successful Gardening" one of the set is Growing your Favourite Plants which I have picked up one by one in Charity shops, and second hand book shops. You often see them on the shelves as a set. The one in particular, "Careing for your favourite plants" has a very good section on growing and careing for Camellias. worth a look mine cost about a £1 each.They are large hard back colour printed books, worth having for quick refernce. Published in 1990 and re published in 1993.

I found out a lot about growing and propagating camellias by asking 'google' on the internet. Lots of information which saved having to buy a book.I printed out the bits which were most interesting to me. Click on Google,and type the one word CAMELLIAS.
