Our first Camellia Japonica Bloom of the season. This variety which is always the first to bloom every fall has an official name of course but I just call it “Frilly” much to consternation of the farm’s name brains. Aside from some hangers on in the cut flower beds, these along with the Camellia Sasanquas are about the only blooms we will see through the fall and coming winter. The Sasanquas will usually begin dropping their blooms in December but the Camellia Japonicas will bloom right on through the winter into late March of next year. They provide some much appreciated color during what is always a pretty drab time of year. Thank you for your visit and have a great evening.
