Hi Pam, I suggest that you ask Camellia Grove Nursery at Glenorie – they are very helpful. Reticulatas are not as much sought after as they were 30 years ago. Please send a photo to Camellia Grove, or better still, take the photo with you when you go there. Stand beside the camellia as the photo as it is being taken (for scale). Good luck, Don
