Recording Camellias

I grant you it may be a misleading title, however, I have been wanting to start this project for the last fifteen years!!!! Time flies…. But here we are in isolation, so there is no better time than to go around the garden and try to identify and/or record each species of flowering camellias. So, today I start with these which, as it happens, are basking in rare sunshine, here on the mountain.

Camellia sasanqua featuring large rose-form flowers. As yet, haven’t found a name for this gorgeous specimen which flowers in our cold, August winters.
