White flowering camellia

At last! One of the flowers on my white camellia has opened nicely...there are a few other buds ready to bloom too!
Very pleased as the first one opened early on and looked pretty ropey..

That's a nice clean-coloured one. I'm glad it's revived for you. I think that very cold few days recently really 'did for' some plants.

Thanks Ange, I’m looking forward to the others opening. There’s one almost ready to do so - maybe later today.. it’s the best it’s been from when I bought it several years ago from Asda as a little foot and a half specimen.

One of the most beautiful white (creamy) flower of camellia I've seen.

I remember you saying that Camellia wasn't doing so well last year,K....it certainly has improved...I have a similar situation here....a white Camellia which I moved 4 years ago and doesn't seem to want to deliver.

That’s right, thanks, Julia, it’s this one. I don’t know, it just seems to have picked up this year! I hope it’s not a one off, though. I’m not aunfait with many shrubs/plants at all, do you have any idea why yours has been like this?

I don't think the soil is particularly good where it is...I just moved it on a spur of the moment...it wasn't doing that well in its previous position. I will have to be more patient.

That’s a real shame, Julia. I’m not very au fait with many shrubs..lack of experience on my part.

That's a beauty Kate! I have two in big pots but the outside petals are always brown spoiling the look of them.

Thanks kindly, Rose. That’s a pity about your two - this one had a flower open early on and it was brown on the petal edges too.

That is lovely, the buttery coloured centre adds to its appeal.

Thank you, Sue. I like your description.
