Camellias Still Blooming

My camellias have been having an outstanding year.  They have been blooming since the end of January.  I am so thrilled, I just had to take more pictures of them. The Red Velvet has more flowers than ever.  I think it helped that deer didn’t eat the shrub this year.

White by the Gate has had very little discoloration from fungus despite the rains this year.

I do not know what is different this year, but the Camellias have given me months of pleasure.  Professor Sargent has a few more buds to open.

  1. I have the last two camellias in this post. Each had one bloom on the bottom of the plant. I suspect that deer nibbled the other buds off. Do you have deer? Do they eat your buds?

    The camellias are absolutely beautiful. The beautiful photo of the white camellia brought back some wonderful memories. The bouquet that I carried at my wedding contained white camellia’s. I think that camellia bouquet’s were quite pricey at that time, and I felt very special to have one.

    Are these cool weather plants? I think they must be. There are a lot of things that seem to have hung on this year, thanks to our cloudy and somewhat damp weather. I know that too much water can causes problems, but I’ve not heard my gardening friends grump about black spot, mold, etc. Maybe it’s just been a good year. In any event, I’m glad you still have them. They’re beautiful, every one.

    • Yes, they are cool weather and flowers blooming in the winter are exciting for a former Yankee. I have Sasanqua that bloom in the fall and the Japonica take over in the winter. They do great where I am because they like acid soil and I’m in a Piney Woods.

    Mine are still blooming too, but they also did not start until halfway through January too.

      Oops, I meant to delete ‘too’ but clicked ‘send’ instead.
      I am pleased that they are delayed, because there was so much rain late in the season. The rain just ran out two weeks ago or so.
