...is blooming now. I believe this is a Camellia Forest Nursery introduction. Supposedly cold hardy to 6b. Anyone growing it?

Freezing rain -- no problem. It's the cold nights that get into the teens that fry the opened flowers!

It has bloomed on and off starting Jan 1 and is still blooming now! Not too many buds left though. I really like this one.
