Ashton's Supreme.

Ashton's Supreme (Ackerman hybrid) is just beginning. It seems to be blooming later this year. We'll see how the blooms hold up to our frosty nights! The ants sure love these flowers.

Thanks for sharing the picture of this beautiful camellia. I hope it does well for you. I understand that it is hardy to 17 degrees below zero. I grow a few cold hardy camellias but haven't been able to locate one of these yet. Where did you get it?

I think I picked this one up at our local Camellia Society's Spring sale, but can't remember exactly. If not there, then at a local nursery. They carry a lot of the hardy Ackerman hybrids.
