Camellia Song

                                                               Camellia oracle of winter bliss                                                                You are the promise of springs renewal
Midst the slumbering landscape
Like winters splendid jewel 
Camellia japonica ‘Melbourne White’
Your miracle of life
So delicate and so sweet
You adorn Victorian homes
Upon these earthly streets
Camellia ‘Sugar Dream’
The beauty of your elegance
Your fragile blossom lingers
The softness of your petals
 Pass through my waiting fingers
Camellia japonica ‘Albertii’
I celebrate your symmetry
Your absolute perfection
Creation of that Life divine
You are but God’s reflection
  
Camellia x vernalis ‘Yuletide’ one of my favorites.
 You are a life long lesson
A song that’s ever sung
From the deepest winter spell
You bring forth the morning sun

Camellia sasanqua ‘Rose Pendant’
Camellia lutchuensis

Camellia lutchuensis has a strong, delicious fragrance that wafts from the numerous white flowers of from midwinter to early spring. It is dubbed the fragrant camellia because it is truly the most fragrant of them all.

My own darling flower.
Such a wonderful time to explore Melbourne gardens in late Winter with camellias in singing bloom across our town. This year I am trying to take cuttings to propagate so I have an heir and a spare to take us through the hot summers to come – so wish me luck!
