From the formal appearance to the double blooms in a lovely lavender-rose color you really cannot go wrong by planting one, or more, Early Wonders in your landscape. What's more, the full, dark green foliage stick around for all year color until the busty flowers sprout again. An early bloomer with a vertical growing habit, you'll be wondering why you haven't planted Early Wonder sooner.

The total number of named camellia varieties is believed to be as high as 20,000 and growing. Camellia japonica is by far the most important species of ornamental camellias. Its varieties grow as shrubs to small trees and the flowers are available in all sizes, colors, and forms. Early Wonder Camellia has an upright growth habit and lavender-rose double blooms.
