Eastern North Carolina Winter in Bloom -The Camellia

Real Estate Agent with The Overton Group, LLC Pitt & Carteret County NC 213723 Broker

The Camellia is a great flowering bush that offers a few petal colors...

and a lovely bloom similar to a rose !
I love this hardy plant/tree as it does well with very , very little care.

The dark green foliage is great for arrangements as well. 

I would note that the deer love the taste of these so if you are in a location where deer roam , use a chicken wire or organic protection to deter them from munching from the ground up ! I once drove up into our driveway at our beach house and found our trees in full bloom, typically from top to ground..but this time it was eaten 25% way up ! 

This is a great bloom to pull from base and float in a dish with a few buds and blossoms or to snip and collect with greenery for a casual arrangement in the home.  Very subtle scent and typically bug free. 

The camellia in the southeast is a great addition to your landscape if you are looking for a splash of color in the late fall-winter.

There are also spring options that can allow you to essentially bloom most of the year as my yard does. 

Do you have this lovely winter bloom in your location  ???

The Camellia is so beautiful! I like the idea of getting creative and floating it in a dish. It would make a great centerpiece on a kitchen table or I would think on top the vanity inside the Master Bath. It's such a beautiful flower!

Your photograph and tips are perfect!

Michelle, Camellias are pretty and smell wonderful.  You can't ask more of a flower - other than being deer resistant!
