Camellias are the gems of the garden in the fall and winter along the Gulf Coast.  The first two shown are Sasanqua type that start to bloom at the end of October.  The ShiShi Gashira are the next two photos and begin opening in December.  Around January the Japonica varieties continue the show with multi-petaled flowers.  In the Automatic Garden the winter ends with the pristine White by the Gate and Red Velvet Camellias.

    Oh, wow – just gorgeous! I especially love the white bloom, although they are all beautiful.

  2. Do all these grow in your garden, too? They are so lovely.
