Growing up my grandmother had a huge pink camellia bush/tree in her front yard just like this one in the picture. The camellia would be covered in the most beautiful pink blooms at the end of December/first of January. It was the most beautiful site in the dead of winter.
Many years a pure white snow would fall blanketing the camellia making it look like a beautiful handcrafted lace tablecloth.
I miss seeing that camellia, but I will always have my southern dreams.
Happy memories & winter to all.
This awesome Japonica is the most popular camellia in America. The dense upright plant is covered in masses of the dazzling perfect camellia blooms from late fall to early spring. A superb camellia for the garden!
