One of the oldest camellia japonicas in cultivation and one of the first double camellias introduced in the West. ‘Alba Plena’ is recognizable in Chinese manuscripts as far back as the Sung Dynasty (960-1279 A.D.) when it was known as TA PAI (Great White). It is a medium-sized formal double flower of porcelain white and blooms very early.
Flawless, white, formal double blossoms make this Camellia a pleasing sight in the winter garden.
