SKU: Camellia-11 Categories: ,


Sporting large, semi-double, pure white flowers with a central blush of palest pink, ‘Queen Bessie’ was named to honor Bessie Bellingrath, wife of Walter Bellingrath, the founder of Mobile’s Bellingrath Gardens. Introduced by noted Alabama nurseryman K. Swanda in 1935, soon after Bellingrath Gardens opened, ‘Queen Bessie’ shows off her white flowers as the light fades in early evening.
