RUBY CAMELLIA

It is late Winter here in the Southern hemisphere and it is surprising how many flowers are in full bloom in our garden. One of the most spectacular is the camellia, whose clear red blooms provide a cheerful note even during the grayest and coldest Winter's day. I think that this is a Camellia sasanqua 'Crimson King', however, I am not sure as the plant is quite old and I cannot remember its pedigree!
