My first Camellias of the year. If you are where they do not grow, Camellias start blooming at this time of the year. It may get very cold and kill the opened blooms, but as soon as it gets in the mid 40's again, more open. They bloom through February-mid March. They belong to the same family as sasanquas, which started blooming early October. I'm working on my new project as well as an older one...I should have finished the older one first.
