A Seedling Camellia

It takes years to grow a Camellia from seed. There was a time when I had time, and did so. These days I'm enjoying seedlings that have reached good size.  This red one is one of my favs.

A last look.

I have some seeds. Maybe there's still time.

Secrets of a Seedscatterer       


  1. Congratulations, i know the feelings of waiting for a long time from germination, and then suddenly seeing the bloom. That camelia is so lovely, we don't have many camelias here in our lowlands but a few white ones in the highland. I remember smelling the scents too.

  2. No time like the present! :) Your camellia from seed is just beautiful. And how satisfying it must be to see it and know that you started it from seed.

  3. Jean ~ How wonderful to have grown that beauty from seeds. I love that color. We may not know how much time we have left on this earth, but we can enjoy each days happenings with joy and thankfulness. Watching plants grow from seeds is a real treat.

  4. Beautiful but they should be named the Sloths of the garden.

  5. Lovely color. I like watching plants grow from seed...it is such a miracle to see how from one small bit, life forms and grows.


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
