In A Vase On Monday – Pink And White Trio

In A Vase On Monday – Pink And White Trio

Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share an arrangement assembled from materials collected in our gardens.

More camellias today, a trio of Camellia sasanqua ‘Hana-Jiman’ which have been featured several times recently.  I had found another Clematis ‘Jackmanii’ bloom to include today as well, but the camellias seemed to prefer to go it alone today.

    A most endearing arrangement and the flowers are gorgeous, as if made of porcelaine. Seeing how well my sasanqua made it through the drought, I should consider planting another one.

    Very pretty way to allow the camellia blooms to sing. Your recent inclusion of camellias had me checking my two camellia sasanquas for blooms but there’s nary a bud yet.

      Donna, like anything when you start researching, camellias have amazing variety in form and color. This one has a unique crinkly petal I like, brushed at the edges with dark pink.

      Ricki, your early spring camellia show will be a welcome sight then. I have one camellia that blooms early March, but the weather is often unkind to it!

    The vase and the flowers make an excellent pairing, Susie. How I wish I could plant that beautiful pink and white Camellia in place of one of the solid pink ones that came with my garden but the difficulty of establishing a new Camellia under drought conditions keeps that temptation in check.

      …and I’d like one of your solid color camellias. I believe camellias do need a fair amount of water. If anyone could get one to thrive it would be you. You have an amazing array of blooms despite water restrictions. Happy Thanksgiving Kris.

    How delightful. Just today, and the past few days, we were trying to decide on a variety for a Camellia sasanqua. There were three originally; two white with a red in the middle. Because we can not match the original white, we will probably get a pink. I do not know what the red one is, but it is not the common ‘yuletide’.

        I would prefer a white camellia too, but not if it does not match the original. I don’t want it to look like something is wrong with one or the other.
