Camellia sasanqua

Camellia sasanqua

If you think you see a rose in full flower out of season – look again – it’s probably a camellia. 

The autumn/winter flowering Camellia sasanqua, also known as the Christmas camellia, is not particularly winter hardy, so needs a sheltered spot here in the UK. This one was enjoying the warm temperatures and plentiful winter sunshine at the Museum of Modern Art in Mississippi.
