First blossom of the year, my camellia flowers in the backyard garden.
Camellia Japonica is one of the best known species of the genus Camellia. Sometimes called “the Rose of winter”, isn’t it such a lovely name, indeed it s a rose of winter cause its shine during the whole period of winter with their glossy, deep green leaves. Even this plant has no problem at all when we experienced the hard winter a couple of years ago.
Unlike other floral emblems of beauty, the Camellia Japonica has no fragrance however the red blossoms were symbols of beauty while the white flowers means for true excellence and faithfulness. When given to a man, camellias represent luck.
