CAMELLIAS and AZALEAS TAKE OVER THE TOWN
Photographs taken in the Town garden in September
1998 by Gay Klok
This Azalea indica is the sofest shell-pink.
I think the name is "Ballerina"
Camellia reticulata "Buddha" growing under
the Ivy tree
Close up of "Buddha"
The kurume Azaleas covers the bush in small
There are many shades in the kurumes from
white to dark red
"Lila Naff", a chance seedling of woderful
beauty, a reticulata the flowers measure
5 1/2 inches, colour silvery-pink
An French japonica, "Adolphe Audusson
gives strong colour in the garden
An evergreen Azalea called "Mother's Day"
Beautiful white blooms with a green eye make
this Azalea indica very beautiful
This is a New Zealand Camellia, bought at
an auction, unnamed, any suggestions?
Camellia japonica "Lady Clare" had flowers
at least 5 inches across
Japanese cherry tree and Camellias look great
This is very interesting and I hope you can
see it. I was taking photos for this
page and noticed that the edges of this one
flower [amongst many] was very
serrated. All the other blooms are
smooth around the edges!
