Rooted cuttings or small plants. For trade I have an old variety of azaleas, deep pink (watermelon) already rooted.

RE: WANTED: Camellias

Rose, I've never had any luck rooting mine but if you're ever in the area (High Point/Greensboro) and would like to try some cuttings give me a yell.

Sorry, I'm not sure how to make this pic smaller because it's an old photobucket pic from 4/05. It's a Lady VanSantt (sp?) and it blooms both of these and everything in between, including a darker solid red occasionally.
Camellia - same bush

Wow, Rootdigger, those are gorgeous! I don't get to Greensboro very often at all, but I will surely keep this in mind. Thanks!

RE: WANTED: Camellias

Rosebush, the Camellias I tried to root for you did not take; at least not yet. I read they were tough to root and I guess it is true.
Lichtenfelt Nursery, in Greer, has some great looking ones for only $25. They have both japonica (Spring blooming) and sasanqua (late Fall blooming)in many great colors.

Thanks! Maybe the cuttings just need more time?
