Camellia Donation


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.

  11. Lovely clear pink color. It's great that it blooms so long for you. I have Yuletide that is supposed to bloom in the winter here, but I'm still waiting after 10 years.
