Description Fine Print
 
This hardy tea plant (Camellia sinensis) is native to China. 'Large Leaf' produces extra large, leathery, serrated leaves up to 6 inches long and 3 inches wide. White, cup-shaped flowers are produced in large quantity in late summer and fall which form nickel sized fruit. Leaves produce a sweeter, gentler taste indicative to both green and white tea. Harvest or 'pluck' tea leaves during the warmer months. This shrub becomes multi-branched and can reach 10 feet tall and wide in 10 years with profuse shoots to harvest from. Or keep pruned to any size you like.
