Grafting and Propagation

The International Camellia Society is blessed with some of the finest production experts in the world.

Camellias are propagated by seed, grafting and by hardwood cutting. The most popular method in most western commercial nurseries is the hardwood cutting. In China, however, new grafting techniques are producing fabulous results and rapid expansion of new varieties is possible.

This section of our site includes articles on every aspect of camellia propagation.
