Red Japanese Camellia
Camellia japonica ‘Glen 40’
A couple more Camellia flowers and carrying on yesterday’s color theme, they are red Camellias. I am going to the NY Orchid Show again today. I am going to see the Orchids but also want a look around the grounds of the NYBG. I then have a bunch of appointments to look at some new work so it going to be a full day. I am suppose to go hear my brothers (two of the them) band tonight but I am not sure I am going to make it as I am a little tired already.
This second Red Camellia kind of reminded me of a Rhododendron flower. This cultivar is ‘Mathotiana Rosea’. The next picture is the compost pile outside the Camellia House, I found the tapestry to be fascinating, but that is probably just me.
