This species has very nice foliage characterized by round leaf apices. Large white flowers are usually high up in the branches of this extremely vigorous growing tree. These seedlings are from the larger leafed form of this species and appear quite different from the plants we first offered as C. vietnamensis. These also bloom later, usually in late winter. This is an example of how confusing the taxonomy of the genus Camellia can be; some species can be highly variable in leaf size or even bloom season.
