Camellia flowers bloom in fall, winter and sometimes into spring. They are gorgeous flowers in a garden with colors differ from red, pink, white or bicolor of white and pink or white and red. There are more than three hundred species with different bloom formations in the number and arrangement of petals, and whether the stamens are visible. 1. Single form blooms have five to eight petals and conspicuous stamens. 2. Semi-double blooms with more than eight petals and semi-conspicuous stamens. 3. Anemone form blooms with one or more rows of outer petals with a center cluster of petaloids, or smaller petals, and semi-conspicuous stamens. 4. Peony form flowers are fuller, have more than one row of petals with a mix of petals and petaloids, and may or may not have conspicuous stamens. 5. Formal double forms are full, with several rows of petals and petaloids that are typically imbricated, or overlapping in a distinct pattern, and have hidden stamens. 6. Rose double form blooms with several rows of petals and petaloids, and hidden stamens that become visible when blossoms fully mature and open.
