In A Vase On Monday – Red Flowers

In A Vase On Monday – Red Flowers

Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.

In A Vase On Monday – Red Flowers

Overnight temperatures in the 20s F. spoil any opened camellia flowers, but buds remain plentiful on Camellia sasanqua ‘Yuletide’. Flowers open afresh daily, so I was able to collect several stems of red camellias for today’s vase.

    How lovely to see your Yuletide Camellia again. Such a beautiful flower and beautifully arranged. Your vase makes me think of a ballerina stretching and balancing perfectly. 😃

    What a perfect stem of blooms this is for displaying so simply in your ikebana dish – it expresses such a lot in such simple perfection and you have the eye to know it needed no embellishment. Just lovely 😊 Coincidentally, I have very recently ‘re-found’ the Yuletide I had bought as a replacement for the one that had lingered in a pot for a couple of years, having compkelely forgotten I had bought a replacement! A very pleasant surprise, and although there are no buds on it it looks healthy enough 😉

        I was relieved the camellia hadn’t suffered from my neglect already – it (and a new daphne) was hidden by an overhanging hydrangea…

      Thanks so much. I do like that image of taking flight. Amy, I tried to leave a comment on your blog but it seemed to require yet another login. I loved your beautiful photos. Dianthus is one of my favorites.

    ‘Yuletide’ was the reddest of the Camellia sasanqua that we grew, and might have been the only red. Others that were ‘red’ were really just rich pink.

        Well, I avoided saying the same. It looks like something out of the garden of Ronald McDonald. I like ‘Yuletide’ because we sold so many of them, and it blooms so reliably. The red is a good color, but yes, the yellow is a bit much.

      Yuletide is fairly common around here in central North Carolina. It’s popular I believe because it blooms around Christmas (though it seems early this year).
