'Desire' Camellia

Camellia japonica 'Desire'

This camellia is a great compact, evergreen shrub.

The money you spend in the Eden webshop goes towards our environmental education programmes.

Over 40,000 under-16s from 900 different schools visit our 'living classroom' each year. They get a unique opportunity to delve deep into the rainforest and form the vital connection with their environment that inspires them to want to conserve it.
