Newbie to this Forum---but need help Identifying a Camellia bush?

RickyJ_7b_Ala(7b ALA)March 12, 2005

Good Afternoon All,

I am usually on the rose forum, but I now come to your forum as I need your expertise. Three years ago I planted a camellia and it has thrived well on the NE side of my home.

It has grown nearly 3 ft. It had large blooms even the first year. The blooms are approx. 4 inches in diameter, medium red in color with yellow stamens. It is blooming its litte head off as we speak.

There was no tag on this plant, although it was from a great nursery.

Anyone have any sugestions? I have taken several pics both from afar and close. I don't know how to load pics here. If someone would trust me with their real email, I would send the pics and see what you think.

Gurley - the 'gallery of blooms' weblink is wonderful, EXACTLY what I needed.
