They are one of the plants I will be highlighting when I speak to the Perennial Plant Society tomorrow night at 7:00 PM in Cheekwood's Botanical Hall in Nashville. The meeting is open to the public so come and and have fun! My topic is "Winter Gardening" and I will cover everything from first and last frost and freeze dates to winter plants, winter greenhouse, winter sowing, winter chores, and winter fun....

  2. I do not recall your Bush being undercut. Has it always been undercut or am I just lacking in the memory department?

    1. I turned it into a tree by way of a cute little electric chainsaw. Good catch Skeeter! Not all are like this-just this huge one.

  4. Wish I could come and hear your talk! The camellia is beautiful--and so big; have you had it a long time?

    1. It's been in the garden 10 years. I did however move it in 2003 so it was set back a bit. It is huge though and has had dozens of baby camellias too.

  5. I share your love of C. sasanqua. Good luck with your talk tomorrow, but I know luck has little to do with it. You will be great!
