The species present in Tragliata are two Camelliajaponica and Camelliasasanqua. The first, most popular and common, it blooms from late January until March. The second, called ‘invernali’, bloom between December and January, with the intense cold. Among the many present Japanese camellias are cultivars and historical varieties including ‘Rubra’, ‘Rubra Simplex’, ‘Alba’ e ‘Alba Simplex’, ‘Stella Polare’, ‘Roma Risorta’, ‘Bonomiana’, ‘Francesco Ferruccio’, ‘Tricolor’, ‘Bella Romana’. There are also varieties of new generation, a little more rustic, among these the ’Snow Ball’ and then the ‘Hagoromo’ between ‘Sasanqua’. Like all lived gardens, camellias have reacted each in their own way. Now the dedication and work of the gardeners who care for them will allow the plants to acclimate, adapt and grow lush.
