Zn 11 Panama Looking for Others
Have been reading the posts hoping to find anyone in Panama who's growing Camellias. I was told Panama is not a camellia area but a neighbor here has quite a large plant which appears to be a Sasanqua. Hers is red and she reports that a similar "white" plant is also available. Haven't seen it yet. We're in the mountains near Costa Rica, have a year-round Springlike climate, and, even with the quantity of rain we receive, there is excellent drainage. Everything grows here, from apple trees and pines to gardenias, Spanish moss and, of course orchids, so am hoping even if Camellias have not been widely grown in the past, they may be in the future. Am looking for any information at all on propagating Camellias here as well as any other folks who may have experience in Zone 11.
