Camellia plants are beginning to bloom in Southern California

This morning as I’m taking down our outdoor Christmas decorations, I’m excited to see camellia buds bursting in flower.  Their bushes with glossy, deep-green leaves are pretty in shady areas but a winter show is in progress. In our yard they also thrive in light shade. Ours are red, but camellias offer ruffled blossoms in glorious shades of pink, white, and blends.
