This is the second winter that we’ve had these plants. The bloom in the fall, and there are lots of buds on them now.

It was 32 deg F. 0 deg C the other morning and the flowers were closed up a little but are back in bloom today.

Average height 10’, 8’ wide

Cold Hardiness 20 to 10 deg F, -7 to -12 C The color I guess is “Winter Star”

Today is Nov 12, in Southern Delaware.

Making Tea from Camellia I’ve never done it.

How nice to have a bit of color rising out of the leaves!!! Very pretty plant karson. You will let us know if you ever decide to make yourself some tea; and how it turns out.

Very nice flower. It is always a bonus for me to see flowers after the frost. Yours is such a nice colour. It would be nice if they would grow up here in Canada zone 5, but I do not recall seeing any frost hardy plants.
