Hello there Monrovia,

Could you offer any advice on all, on how to obtain a Camellia sinensis (green tea), any variety, plant?

I have found 1 or 2 online mail order catalogs but only 1 of them ships to California.

I'm also open to receiving leaf/stem cuttings to grow myself...I just need a source!

Would you guys, or any of your retail sellers, ever stock these plants?

Kind regards,
Deanna Vazquez

I know of only one source of Camellia sinensis; Raintree Nursery in Morton, WA. Here's their website address:
If you do a plant search under TEA, you'll find your plant. As I understand it, they do ship to California.

Best wishes with your new camellia!
