Camellias are best known for the fall, winter, and spring flowers in the South. Fall and Winter flowering shrubs are Camellia sasanqua; Camellias that flower in many colors of red, pink, white, variegated, and purple. The major winter-spring flowering camellia types are called Camellia japonica, and many old cultivar listings are available to buy from an Internet nursery. Cultivars like: Alba Plena, Emily Wilson, Jesse Burgess, Mathotiana Rubra, Peppermint, Pink Perfection, Pot of Gold, and Professor Sargeant, Rosea, The colors of the camellia come in shades of red, white, pink, or a combination of colors. If the flowers are cut from the shrub they will last for quite awhile in a bowl of water. Most of the varieties of the camellia shrub can live for many years and grow to be about 25 feet tall. You can also prune them to be almost any shape or size you desire, but they grow very slow. Camellia seed oil contains Vitamins A, B, C, E and Polyphenol, natural anti-oxidants that safeguard skin from the damaging effect of UV/environmental exposure and free radicals. It has a very high Oleic acid content, and other essential fatty acids compared to the other natural oils. These substances naturally found in human skin decline as we age and this is the key factor why skin is drier as we mature.
