Camellia × williamsii ‘Anticipation’ — 16 Comments

  1. Gorgeous photos alistair. It’s such an exciting time of the year isn’t it! You Do indeed have some fantastic plants in your garden. My husband is in Aberdeen at the mo and the weather looks beautifully sunny, though I know you are further south in Fife. Let’s hope our lovely weather continues! ellen.

  2. My goodness ! Do you have any idea how lucky you are my friend ? .. what gorgeous plants with stunning flowers.
    They would never survive my zone and that makes me sad .. I would love to have them.
    We are still LOCKED in winter here .. patches of ice still covering a very dead looking garden .. this has been one of the toughest we have had in years .. so hard to believe that Spring will ever come,
    But having your blog to see wonderful plants like this lifts my weary spirits 🙂 Thanks !

  3. Wonderful plants and flowers, Alistair! I especially love Skimmia japonica and Camellia, as never am able to grow them in my climate. They amaze growing in pots.
    I agree with Joy O’Connor– you’re very lucky gardener.

  4. Hello Alistair, we’re in full-on Camellia season here in the south too. I don’t know what varieties we have as we inherited ours. It’s good to know about the pruning as ours are so heavy with flowers that they double-over and I get worried that branches might break. I’m very envious of your skimmia and the prunus is delightful. It’s the blush pink on the tips that makes it special.

  5. Your camellias are beautiful! I miss camellias from when I lived further south. I bought one last fall that is supposed to be hardy here, but it is waiting for spring planting in my basement and is currently in bloom there!
