Spring's Promise is starting out early for me this year. It will bloom on and off with warm spells all winter. Flowers are single and sort of coral pink.

Here's Winter's Joy, just starting up. This is a cold-hardy Ackerman selection. Just planted this summer.

Very good pictures. I have a small plant of 'Spring's Promise' that began blooming early here in Georgia. I am glad to know it is naturally an early bloomer with a long blooming season.

Hi dave_in_nova, I am so happy to find another gardener in NOVA. I am new to camellia and any help you can provide will be very appreciated. I bought a kumasaka this fall and I am still trying to figure out how hardy it is here. Will they be ok not planted right by the foundation?

Kumasaka should be good in this area. They always say though to protect them the first couple years. That said, I planted a Kumasaka last year about 8 feet from the house and it did just fine with no protection.
