A Formal Double Camellia is one of the most desirable Camellia forms of the entire Camellia family. They can be a very tightly formed flower or they can be loose formal double, often referred to as a Rose Form Double. Most true formal double flowers don't open to show stamens.
Do you ever wonder how Camellias are named? Carolus Linnaeus, an 18th century Swedish botanist, is responsible for most of the world’s classification of plants and animals, otherwise known as taxonomy.
