In A Vase on Monday – Camellia


The vase this week is a simple one which doesn’t really require me to say much.  The camellia flower is from a small camellia I have growing in a pot.  It is a plant I rescued from one of those ‘bargain’ areas in a nursery and planted out in the garden.  However, it was apparently unhappy as the leaves were very yellow, despite me having another very healthy camellia near by.  So like many a good gardener before me I dug it up and put it in a pot with lots of ericaceous compost and I have been rewarded with healthy glossy leaves and half a dozen or so of these sumptuous pink blooms.

    I am so pleased your camellia has perked up since you rescued it – and what a pretty little vase it makes. I wonder how long it will last in water..? Thanks for sharing

  2. Well, it is a very happy plant now, if it can produce such blooms! And the dark grey velvet is a good choice for the background, allowing the pink bloom to sing.

    I am glad to know another plant rescuer.

  4. I used to have a gorgeous camellia in the garden of our first house. It grew next to the wall where the central heating boiler was and was always the first thing to flower in spring. Clearly our insulation wasn’t up to much!!

    How lovely! And even lovelier to hear that you’ve rescued it from camellia depression and it’s rewarded you with such beautiful flowers!!
