Last Camellias of the Season

Camellia season ends when the weather warms.

I was finally able to get a pic of last-to-bloom
Blood of China that looks almost true to color.

It was a good camellia year despite February's cold.
Open blooms are destroyed by freezes; tight buds can tolerate cold.

As Camellias end their season, Azaleas are getting ready to bloom. Hydrangeas have tiny buds.
