The Williamsii hybrid camellias have been the most important group of varieties in the rise in popularity of camellias in the UK and Europe.
Williamsii hybrid camellias tend to flower more freely and reliably from a young age and these Camellias also tend to be more hardy than their japonica cousins.
Most are crosses of Camellia japonica and Camellia saluenensis. The winter hardiness is generally inherited from the japonica part of their parentage and the free flowering and tolerance of low light intensity comes from the saluenensis side.
If you are gardening in the far north of the UK, or suffer from extreme cold conditions, this group of Camellias is recommended.
