I have been anxious for these delicate rose-like blooms to open before we have more bad weather. Here it is today: Moonlight Bay! Extraordinary!
These are Betty Sheffied Supreme.
First bloom in our garden (a little weathered) is Silver Triumph.
Stunning red and white: Magic City!
Love this subtle pink beauty - Margaret Davis!
You can learn more about these beautiful plants at http://www.camellias-acs.com/. This is also the time to propagate by grafting.
In a few months we'll get to see if this one "takes".
If you have an opportunity, visit a camellia garden and enjoy the beauty. This would be a great time to see Magnolia Gardens near Charleston, S. C. It won't be long before spring will be showing off its best blooms!
Kudos to Philip for all his work on the camellias!! What a great hobby!!
