In A Vase On Monday – January Blossoms

In A Vase On Monday – January Blossoms

Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden encourages us to share a vase highlighting what is growing in our gardens. It is the first Monday of the new year. Providing continuity from the past year, 2020’s initial vase holds the familiar blossoms of Yuletide sasanqua camellia. It really is the only choice for flowers this week.

But I included a preview of Vases Future. Hellebores seem a bit late this year despite relatively mild weather recently. Their buds are promising.

The Daphne shrubs are full of buds and finally a tiny flower has emerged.

The anthurium flower is from a house plant we were given a year ago. Originally the color was pink and perhaps it will be again one day. I have brought it into a different room where it will receive more light and where I will be reminded to water it occasionally.

    You’re so creative in using your Camellias in different mixes, Susie. I look at my Camellia sasanqua and can’t come up with anything. I have buds on my Daphne, planted on a whim as I’m pushing my zone – my fingers are crossed!

    What an intriguing mixture of blooms – I have never thought of using a hellebore bud before so do let us know how well it stands up to being cut for a vase. Here, the buds of mine are visible but mostly still at ground level although I am fairly confident they will be flowering when we open the garden in mifd Feb for the first time. Thanks for sharing

      I’d been eyeing that Anthurium for some time and finally decided to cut the flower. Moved it to a new location and trying to remember to water it.

      Jason, that Yuletide is a sasanqua camellia and has been blooming for several months now. Its main bloom period is gone but it’s still possible to find a few fresh blooms each morning. I’ve had to rely on it so much to use in my vases I’m anxious for something else to open!

    Those are nice ‘Yuletide’ sasanqua camellias. Ours did not do so well this year. They opened nicely, but did not last long. You probably know that they can have dud years.
