Camellia 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 Tea" 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'
If you are growing this plant in Zone 6a or farther north, we'd love to hear about it!
