Camellias flowering

steve_nj(7-a)March 17, 2012

Camellias will be at peak of bloom during the next 2 weeks.There are over a hundred in the ground, although not all are in bloom. Anyone who wants to walk through the garden Sunday March 18th and 25th, email me for the address. This is in addition to the Garden Visit/Potluck on April 15th (email me for address). More about the potluck in an upcoming post.

Wow, all very beautiful! Do you know the name of the 3rd one (red semi-double)?

I'd have to check and see if I can find a label.

Would you call that a semidouble form? Or more of a peony?

Steve,
Nice flowers. I also posted some closeups here ("Camellias are early here in zone 6 - photos") a couple of weeks ago. They really are great plants and I think they should be used more than they are.
