Plant Focus : Camellia x williamsii ‘Debbie’

… meet Debbie, the gorgeous, paeony like pink Camellia from our recent visit to Cornwall, where they are flowering in abundance as we speak! The Camellia is a relative of the tea plant and Tregothnan has its very own tree plantation! This beauty however, is Camellia x williamsii, an hybrid created by John Charles Williams at Caerhays Castle in the 1920’s … not sure who the illusive Debbie was though!
