About C. sinensis "Korea":
These seedlings come from plants originating on Chiri Mountain, the second tallest mountain in South Korea. The glossy leaves are slightly larger than those of "Small Leaf" but are quite a bit darker and significantly less reticulated. These plants have so far proven to be quite cold-hardy and their compact stature makes them great for containers. Customers have reported these are some of the more cold hardy tea plants.
Average mature leaf size: 4.5" x 2"
10 year size: 6' x 6'
