As usual one more unusual beauty in your collection.

I think that a few people on here have this now Camillia. I guess that a photo of it in the process of opening makes it look a little more unusual though.

Thanks all!
Karen - Spritz and Alex have this too for sure. Hopefully we should have a few decent days and the flowers will open properly. The blooms are "reflexive" (unsure of the correct phrase) in the same way as Tulip, Crocus, California poppy etc in that they close at night or when it's cool.
Elther way, come Christmas all the flowers are getting pinched off to let the plant bush out.

Oooh, that's very 'disciplined' of you Meanie. I think pinching flowers out is hard....but at Christmas time.....oooh, when there are so few flowers around.......I'm impressed!
