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":  which show how information may have degraded.—Tokek (talk) 15:52, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Recognized, or not?
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)
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 (talk • contribs) 05:54, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
