Some controversy?![edit]

QUOTING the article:

"There are 100–250 existent species, with some controversy over the exact number. "

If it is not yet known whether the number of species is in the 100's or the 200's, controversy over the exact number seems extremely premature and perhaps ludicrous.

For reference sake, this is the exact edit that added the word "controversy": [1] which show how information may have degraded.—Tokek (talk) 15:52, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Recognized, or not?[edit]

Quoth the article: "The most famous member – though often not recognized as a camellia – is certainly the tea plant (C. sinensis)." So... is the tea plant recognized as camellia? Is it 100% genuinely camellia? I think it's poorly worded. —Tokek (talk) 15:45, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

"bouquet"?[edit]

This sentence occurs in the 'camellia' article: "Camellia flowers throughout the genus are characterized by a dense bouquet of conspicuous yellow stamens..." It uses 'bouquet' to describe a feature of parts of a flower, rather than a group of flowers. Is this a metaphorical use, or a term of art in florology? I ask because I can't find this meaning in any dictionary I've looked at. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JohnOFL (talkcontribs) 05:54, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
