New Here ... New Camellias
I'm usually a fixture over in the Rose Forums, Antiques especially. Since I now have camellias, I decided to come over here and check things out.
I added two camellias to the garden earlier this year ... I don't remember which ones without going out to check the tags. I visited a garden earlier this month that had beautiful camellias, high as the trees in some cases, and now I have to get more. This is a great way to extend the season in the garden, 'cause the roses are finished now. Camellias appear to be perfect for me, and they'll thrive in locations where roses would struggle.
Went to Little Five Azalea Farm in Richmond yesterday, and I have five new ones in the back of the truck. Their prices and selection were very good. The only one I remember off the top of my head is 'Buttons n Bows'. (Got three of these) I was attracted to the straight upright form for this one particular place in the garden. Anyone here grow this one?
