Camellia yunnanensis

Smells like apricots in bloom. I went to Nuccio's in January and bought an assortment of species camellias in one gallon pots. C. brevicalyx had round red buds that remained in a state of suspended animation until the unheated greenhouse got warmed by improving weather, at which point they suddenly started to open, with the first flower lasting over a week. It was reddish and bag-like, with massive silky petals.

Send them an order, they are an international level resource that I want to stay open.

First time I had made it there, as I live in WA and they are down near Los Angeles, over on the side of the valley, in front of some abrupt hills that on that rainy winter day were green and misty - as though it was somewhere like China, oh so appropriately.

Oh man. I went to Los Angeles for almost a week many years ago and did not get a chance to go there. Would not have been a good time to see bloomage but Nuccios is so well known....

I hope you like it and get some seed pods! When does it bloom? If it is bloom now, post pictures.

I've never posted any photos of anything - don't feel you are being picked on.
