I saw this flower while walking outside and would be really interested in growing it in my garden. Could anyone give me the name for them!


  • What's the location? Knowing where it's growing can help narrow down the possibilities. – The Flash Apr 29 '15 at 16:17

That is a Japanese Camellia (Camellia japonica), a close relative to Camellia sinensis, which produces green and black tea.

Apart from long standing garden fame, it has been immortalized in art and literature, e.g. Dumas' The Lady of the Camellias.
