About Us

Cam Too was established as a camellia nursery in 1982, as an outgrowth of a long term camellia hobby. We are committed to the advance of camellia cultivation. To produce top quality garden varieties by increasing the temperature zone ranges of camellias, the blooming season, increased bud-set for a more floriferous plant and increasing disease resistance. We are located north of Greensboro, North Carolina in the United States, on 60 acres of land off of Highway NC 150. Our current inventory consists of approximately 2 million plants: Camellia japonica, sasanquas , Zone 6 Camellia Hybrids and Camellia species plus other shrubs, trees and perennials. Although much breeding work has been done on camellias in recent years, few different types have been added to the standard commercial fare. These standard varieties are very good for some localities, but many lack adequate hardiness to grow in the temperature zones where people are still interested in them! We are constantly pushing at the northern edge, reaching people who were previously unable to enjoy the breath-taking beauty of these ever-green, winter-blooming plants. We are continuing to work on and release varieties that are variously adapted to hardiness zones 6 through 9 that will together span the blooming season from September to April. Cam Too Camellia Nursery is wholesale only for our plants. But anyone is invited to call or email for questions about the plants. We are growing plants for next year’s market and for the future. We love what we do, and we do what we love – Grow Camellias!!
