Camellia japonica 'Moonlight Bay' achieves breathtaking loveliness with its very large semi-double light orchid pink flowers, nearly 6 in. wide (15 cm). Flat, the luminous petals delicately enclose an open center of gold stamens. The flowers are happily produced over a fairly long period extending from early to late season (October to May in the northern hemisphere; March to October in the southern hemisphere). Vigorous, this camellia forms an attractive dense bush year-round, with its lustrous foliage of glossy, evergreen, dark green leaves.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
