Freshly harvested green tea leaves are yours for the tea-making!
Includes one pot of Green Tea Camellia.
Majestic white flowers slightly droop against glossy green, elliptic leaves chock full of health benefits! The young leaves of this Camellia can be harvested to make a variety of teas. The Green Tea Camellia reaches 4 to 6 feet tall and wide and grows in a compact, rounded shape, gracing landscapes, gardens, and patios with evergreen beauty.

Is this for you?
Fragrant, creamy white flowers with vivid yellow stamens attract pollinators to the garden. Depending on how you choose to dry your leaves, you can make green, black, oolong, or white tea. Once growth has begun in spring, young leaves from new shoots can be picked and sun dried or roasted in a warm oven. For best quality, use tea leaves immediately after drying.

Ornamental fall flowers bloom through winter in warmer climates. This evergreen shrub looks splendid against partially shaded woodland areas bordering the home or lawn. It can also be grown as a hedge or an espalier against a garden wall, and can easily be grown in a container in cold climates and brought inside to a cool spot during the winter months.

Promote low, spreading branches with light pruning for easy waist-high picking. The Green Tea Camellia prefers a half day of sun beneath tree canopies and slightly acidic, moist, fertile soil.

Can be grown throughout most of the continental U.S. An excellent value and investment in any landscape. **This product cannot ship to the following states and territories AK, HI, PR, VI, GUAM.

What to expect:
Plants ship to you based on your geographic location. We ship throughout the spring, starting in early March. Your shipment will be based on the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map which we have correlated to your zip code. This means you will receive your plants when it is the right time to plant for you.

You will receive one Green Tea Camellia in a 5.5-inch pot. This plant was carefully selected and packed for safe transport directly to you. Open immediately and follow the instructions for planting and care in the planting guide available online.

Expect your plant to reach maturity in 3 to 7 years. However, growth can be affected by many factors including fertilization and climate factors unique to your planting location.

Expect heaviest blooming in early autumn with continuous blooming until winter. You may see a few flowers the first year with more and more flowers each year as the plant grows.
