Camellia 'Debbie'

The very pinnacle of Camellia unpleasantness. Ugly ragged bushes like torn newspaper shapes spattered with ridiculous pink pom-poms.
I wouldn't grow it for its beauty, but it is just so obliging it seems unfair to cut it down.

'Debbie' always treads a fine line between ugliness and removal, and this one slipped onto the wrong side when I demolished the old pergola and widened the path. First it was in the way and then it wasn't. I could have removed the stump carefully and replanted. It would have regrown but I have another large one at the top of the garden and I don't really like it. If I am going to find another space for a Camellia it should be something I enjoy. This one went up in smoke which was an evenings entertainment and as much fun as I have had from it in the last decade.
