Camellia sinensis 'Rosea'
This cultivar's pale pink flowers are produced in profusion in early autumn. Burgundy new growth is the most outstanding quality of this variety, but the red pigment is found in all parts of the plant: from the roots to the bright pink filaments of the flowers. The tiny leaves are incredibly dark and become quite smooth as they mature, lending a lovely, delicate texture to a hedge row for those who are patient. Slow growth makes 'Rosea' an excellent selection for containers.
