  1. Just saw your reply, thanks. Also, I live in the bay area as well and am acquainted with Bob Ehrhart and John Wang. If you surplus camellias I would love them to take them off your hands for a price. -Charlie

  2. I am searching for very high resolution photos of Camellia sasanqua for use as wall art in a dark office hallway, preferably bright pink with a light background or sky. The printed image will be approximately 24″x48″. Do you have any that would be suitable?

    Thank you
