Camellia sinensis Plant

 I recently ordered four Camellia sinensis plants
They were wrapped securely and delivered safely. 
 For those who may not be familiar with this plant,
Camellia sinensis is the species of plant whose leaves
and leaf buds are used to produce the beverage tea.
White, green, oolong, pu-erh, and black tea are all harvested
from this species, but are processed differently to attain different
levels of oxidation.
I ordered these from
Unlike several of my good Tea Friends, I am not a gardener.
My mother was the "queen" of gardening and houseplants.
I, unfortunately, did not inherit or learn, or even enjoy that skill.
But, my friend, Patty, is a Master Gardener, so I
sent 2 of the plants home with her, hoping she will
love and pamper them, at least until September
when I am scheduled to make a tea presentation
to her ladies church goup. 
I'll keep y'all updated!
