Camellia japonica ‘Suzhou Embroidery’

John Wang of Orlinda, California is without question one of the premier camellia breeders in the world. John has made many incredible crosses and developed many impressive seedlings as a result of his hybridization work. In the fall of 2017, Gene’s Nursery is releasing one of John Wang’s very unique introductions called ‘Suzhou Embroidery’. The small formal double flower is a white to off white cream with an intricately woven golden pattern towards the center of the flower. This flower is very impressive and extremely unusual! We think that every camellia lover will want to have at least one plant of this brand new camellia variety!
