About This Group

Camellia is a genus of flowering plants in the family Theaceae. They are native to eastern and southern Asia, from the Himalaya east to Korea and Indonesia. There are 100–250 described species, with some controversy over the exact number. The genus was named by Linnaeus after the Jesuit botanist Georg Joseph Kamel from Brno, who worked on the Philippines. This genus is famous throughout East Asia; camellias are known as cháhuā (茶花) in Chinese, as tsubaki (椿) in Japanese, as hoa trà or hoa chè in Vietnamese language and as dongbaek-kkot (동백꽃) in Korean.

Landscapes or macros – in whole or in part – camellias are what we want!
