Camellia japonica 'Odoratissima' is a captivating flowering plant renowned for its exquisite beauty and delightful fragrance. It boasts glossy, dark green foliage that serves as an elegant backdrop for its stunning flowers. The blooms are large, rose-like flowers that can measure up to 5 inches in diameter. These flowers typically appear in late winter to early spring, adding a burst of colour to the garden when many other plants are dormant. The petals are usually a rich shade of pink, sometimes with hints of white or deeper hues towards the centre.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.
