We carried this largish shrub with us out of the 2020 PNW Flower & Garden Festival. I couldn’t decide if the stares were due to the beautiful blooms or because it looked like we were trying steal furtively out of the show behind a shrubbery. Camelias do well in shade and part shade, but I’ve read morning sun could potentially burn early frosted blooms, so we’ll see how it does given the eastern exposure. I think this old fashioned favorite complements the red trim of our old timey house quite well!
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
