Camellia japonica Greensboro Red

Greensboro Red comes from a nursery in (guess where) Greensboro, NC. It is of unknown, pre-1900 parentage, loved for its light-red, semi-double flowers that bloom profusely late in the season. Habit is upright and medium-sized with dark-green leaves. *Deer Heavily Browse* [Note: Current stock is from Cam Too in Greensboro arrived mislabeled; some are not Greensboro Red but are labeled as such. We can tell whoÕs who only when they are in bloom. That task will have to wait till spring 2015. But we do have some.]
