I love camellias and have grown both the camellia japonicas and sasanqua here. We've also had success grafting and rooting the japonicas as well as rooting the sasanquas. We haven't tried the grafting for this type. It's recommended that rooting be done in midsummer.

I bought this plant on sale from Walmart fall of 2005 and its been in the pot since then. A week ago my husband noticed beautiful rose colored "weird flower" his word. The tag was still on it and it says it's a Kajiro Camellia. Yes, it grows here in Dallas area with no problem.

Beautiful deep rosy-pink with blossoms that have a scent close to rose. Great nectar plant in the late winter for bees.
