Taki Thousand Year Camellia

Hidden away at the end of a logging road in Yosano, this camellia tree is about 1,000 years old, making it one of the oldest in the world. The tree is 9.7 meters tall, with a girth of 3.26 meters. A characteristic of this tree in particular are its dark crimson flowers, which are much darker than most of red camellia trees.
