Camellia 'Elizabeth Rothschild'

There is an insidious process in marketing called 'buy one get one free' that persuades me (and probably us)
to buy more than we need or intended. Bogof is an acronym and an appropriate response but there is always the allure
of a bargain. When I bought 'Elizabeth Rothschild' it really was a bargain, and I bought a dozen or so cultivars
that I didn't know and didn't really need. They have added a lot to the Camellia walk and once the
rabbits stop pruning them they will mature in a satisfactory way.
In the period since I planted them I have discovered that this is a reticulata hybrid and in flower
it looks like almost every other reticulata hybrid.
