Camellia japonica 'Roosevelt Blues' at Camellia Forest Nursery

Camellia japonica 'Roosevelt Blues'

  • $25.00

In Alabama in the 1930's, a man named Robert Rubel, Jr. was exceptionally against FDR being elected for a fourth term.  This plant was named and used in his anti-Roosevelt campaign.  While the campaign was unsuccessful, the plant certainly wasn't!

Highly variable bloom forms lend extra excitement to these dark red flowers that typically fade to bluish-purple.  An unusual addition to any Camellia collection!
