Camellia x williamsii 'Simon Bolitho'



3rd February 2009


I have had two plants for a long time - I bought two rooted cuttings in 2002 and planted them on either side of a gateway, and they have slowly inched upwards. No flowers yet, but the leaves are impressive in the snow.

A seedling raised at Trengwainton. It is a single, but with some extra petals and some frilling. My plants are growing on top of a wall and that has possibly reduced their vigour. When I planted them I had a vision that they would tower up and ach over at some distant time. That time is still distant. A decade after I planted them, they are about three feet tall.
