Camellia 'Tama-no-Ura'

Camellia japonica 'Tama-no-Ura'

The Susie Harwood Garden at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte is home to many exotic ornamentals from around the world which are suitable for use in our piedmont gardens.  Camellia 'Tama-no-Ura' is one of these; it's currently blooming at the entrance to this garden.

  1. Thanks for making a comment on my Higo post. I looked up your Tama and I don't believe it is a Higo. The stamens do not radiate out enough, they are more upright. However, it is a gorgeous camellia. I found an interesting site all about the Tama family of Camellias. Here is the link:


  2. thanks for that link, les. i had looked around on the web a little bit - enough to conclude (like you did) that it probably isn't a higo camellia - but didn't see this additional info. all the tamas are lovely, aren't they?

  3. What a beauty!! I love the white edges...just wonderful.
