Leslie Ann

I have been enjoying the many Camellia sasanquas blooming, but I have especially enjoyed the sasanqua 'Leslie Ann'. The flowers of this variety open up first as a formal double like the picture below that I took today. It is one of the few sasanquas with a border around each petal. This variety has to be one of my very favorites.

Beautiful! What more can I say? The water droplet is perfection. Unfortunately it's not hardy in my area. If I had any more room to bring in plants for winter I would try it in a container but my sunroom is chock full and I've had to put one large plant in my attic and three large cymbidium orchids in the basement.

That is truly lovely. Do you by chance know a source for it?

Donna, You should be able to find 'Leslie Ann' at a number of Camellia Nurseries. I am attaching the link to the Camellia Web Marketplace. Check out some of the sources there.

Here is a link that might be useful: Camellia Web Marketplace

wow! If I could only grow one that would probably be it! Probably not hardy for me either!

C. s. 'Leslie Ann' does well for me. I think it came from Camellia Forest Nursery in chapel Hill.
