Latin Name: Camellia Sinensis
Description: Soft green leaves emerge on new and old wood, making the green tea plant a vivacious grower. Small white flowers may appear in the summer, and should they be brought outside can be pollinated by local bees.
DISCLAIMER: Peter Knippel Garden Centre recognizes that plant-derived medicaments and home remedies are used by all cultures; however, we do not recommend, endorse, or advise the consumption of available plants. Research all plants before using. Use or consume at own risk.
Watering: Do not let the plant dry out. A good practice is to use a soil moisture meter towards the inside of the roots, or use your finger to best decide how saturated the soil it. A thorough soak every 10-15 days is a good benchmark.
Growth Rate: medium-fast
Shape: upright, branching
