I’ve been investigating the identity of some of the pink camellias blooming in our garden now. I collected some for the table.
I began by looking at this popular encyclopaedia which was on my bookshelf. However, I had greater success with the website http://www.camelliasaustralia.com.au – so here goes…
A beautiful mid pink rose-like flowers – Ellie’s Girl.
Pale pink large double flowers- Mrs DW Descanso. These have been flowering since June!
Rosy salmon blooms – Harriet Beecher Sheather.
Of course, it’s a challenge identifying a bloom from a page or a website. Would love to attend a camellia conference – one day!
Enjoy your season. Next week: the white edit 😊💐🌺🌷
