A Crescendo of Camellias
With the sun making an appearance, I went to the Ventnor Botanic Gardens to see what was flowering, and what damage the recent frosts had wreaked.
There were a few South African flowers such as the Rain Daisy, Cape African Queen, and Myrtle-leaved Milkwort (extra), but the main flowering shrubs were the camellias. The central bloom is Japonica 'Desire', and clockwise from top left:
Hakurakuten; x Williamsii 'Donation'; Spring Mist, Hybrid 'Freedom Bell'; Bushfield Yellow; Cornish Spring; another Japonica 'Desire' and San Dimas.
There was minimal frost damage, mainly affecting the more exposed succulents. I am sure I will be back to enjoy more floral displays.
