This Camellia is growing outside my kitchen window and it's been flirting with me for weeks, saying c'mon you know you want to photograph me...look how pretty I am." Yesterday I finally went out and took a ton photos of this bush/tree. It's at least 8-9 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide. It's loaded with flowers all at different stages and it appears to have two different, but similar looking flowers. It looks beautiful and I totally neglect it. I hardly ever water it.

Well all your neglect has paid off handsomely - well done! Maybe that's what I need to do with a few of my plants.

What a fantastic series of photos! Lovely colour.
Mine is a red one and it's just showing colour on its buds.

The lady at the gardening store told me most people kill things with kindness. She tells me "leave it alone!"

Our son bought one similar for my wife last mothers day. Its only three feet tall and yet to flower this season but it is full of bud, I am watching it with interest.
