Classic Camellias for New Zealand GardensTHEY flower throughout winter and early spring, when most trees and shrubs are hibernating, and they have fabulous glossy foliage - so why is it that camellias aren't feted by more gardeners?

James Young is hoping his book will help right the balance, with 100 choice camellias suited to New Zealand conditions.

Classic Camellias for New Zealand GardensLavishly illustrated with full colour photographs, Classic Camellias for New Zealand Gardens makes choosing the perfect camellia for your garden simple.

History, classification, flowering times and pest and disease problems are all covered in this beautiful book.
