First flower this year. (Camellia japonica (Camellia))

Planted for our Ruby Wedding, it has to be in a pot as we don't have acid soil.

Beautiful. How scented is it? I think I know just the spot for one of these ;o)

I have to be honest, maple, I have not stuck my nose in it! I'll give it a try and let you know. It is a beauty, though. I love it! It is outside our back door placed just where I can see it every time I go out!

Sorry, guys, but it only looks beautiful, it does not have a scent as well. :-(

'Adolphe Audusson' is another good red variety and should be readily available

Not a problem Spritz. If you are this beautiful why do you need scent too? Clever plant and I still want one

Lovely colour. We just celebrated our Ruby wedding too. We are still looking for a celebratory plant. I'm will be searching for climbing roses to scamble over pergolas, and I hope I can find a rose in a nice ruby red colour. The garden centres here are still in winter closure but I hope March will provide me with some choices.
