camellia_2….and more Camellias.  This plant loves my Wake County woods. 

And if you want winter colors (like blog partner, Melissa), Camellia Crimson Candles can’t be beat. 

I love the way it showers the ground with spent blossoms.camellia_wide

And I love the way it shines from my kitchen window where I spend a lot of time working over the sink. 

We’re blessed with one of the country’s best Camellia Nurseries in Chapel Hill.  Most of my favorite shrubs come from Camellia Forest.  Pay them a visit and start enjoying Camellias of your own.
