WELL, NO, not my 2 legged Aunt Alice… she has been gone quite a few years… No, this is my favorite camellia, Aunt Alice. Actually I bought Aunt Alice because of her name, because I had an Aunt Alice, as you might have figured. She had only one bloom on her at the time, a sad droopy looking bloom that fell off before I even got the plant to the van. I planted her in a very sheltered spot, safe from sun burn in the winter time, and she has done real well there. Unfortunately I can’t see her from the house, but she is well worth the little walk to go visit this time of year. I know, there are a lot of pictures, but that is because each bloom is different and unique. (And I am redundant, but that is because I repeat myself a lot in my old age.) Anyway, here is this year’s blooming – pictures from last week that I took before the bitter cold got here and the SNOW!
I just had to bring some in for the table. The big double pink is Debutante.
