Winter’s Star Camellia

November 3, 2010

Every year around the last part of October my Camellia oleifera ‘Winter’s Star’ starts blooming.

I especially enjoy this because:

  1. It’s blooming when nothing else is,
  2. I love the color of the blooms, and
  3. I always wanted to grow camellias, but couldn’t until moving south.

There aren’t many blooms yet, so the bush doesn’t look too impressive.  Maybe later!
