My favourite Camellia has started to flower. She's called Donation and I got given one many years ago when my son was born. I have planted one every time I have moved since then and have 2 big plants here.
She is a great looking shrub all year round with dark glossy green leaves and bright pure pink flowers. She starts flowering in June (winter for us) and keeps going until mid spring.
A constant display of these beautiful flowers. Best of all she looks after herself, no pruning, no bugs - my sort of plant.
