Camellia sasanquah 'MonDel' followed me home from Flower World last weekend. Flowers at this time of year are always welcome, right?
However, Camellia japonica varieties usually bloom in my garden in February, March, and April. We've had a mild autumn with record breaking rainfall and my japonicas are confused. It's a bit troubling to see buds coloring up this early as frost can burn them.
Some flowers are actually opening. Oh well, there are a lot of other things blooming in the spring and some buds are still tightly closed so there may be vernal blooms as well.
Are we going to skip winter this year? (He said hopefully.)
