Blooming Camellia Sinensis Bush

Blooming Camellia Sinensis Bush

My wife snapped this picture of one of the camellia sinensis (tea) bushes at the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh. What’s special about this bush? It is blooming with yellow tea flowers. Tea bushes do not last long in Pittsburgh, whether outside in a yard or inside a conservatory, so go to Phipps and try to locate this bush. It is in the tropical rainforest exhibit.
