{Our Camellia Yuhsienensis}

From a tree enthousiast at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens in Gainesville, Florida, we did receive some exotic plants in return for material from our Golden Oak 'Quercus Virginiana Grand View Gold' which seems to be the only species around. He is trying his best to propagate it so the species will be preserved for the future. Below this post you find links that lead to our very rare Golden Oak. But here is one of the exotics we received; Camellia Yuhsienensis. This is a species that is suppposed to be from the Hunan province in China.


Isn't she a beauty? Very special petals!
This is inside the greenhouse extension husband Pieter built this summer. Link you find below.


This is the first time that this young Camellia Yuhsienensis blooms so we were thrilled to see its blossoms!
This species from China has white petals with notched tips, unlike other species, this flowers in clusters at branch tips resulting in a heavy floral display in January through February


Next to the acrylic side panels that Pieter put in there in the summer.


Any blossom in the winter is a bonus!
Photos are all taken on January 20 and it is supposed to bloom in January/February so right on time.


Guess it is well protected against the harsh frost we endured the month of January.
Let it grow into a stronger adult shrub first before exposing it to the elements.
Do you see those buds?

      This Camellia is a gorgeous one and such a joy for mid winter!
      Oh, the Dutch, especially from the northern part of the country are almost born with skates under and they always have performed well.
      Thank you for your kind words and enjoy your Sunday.

  4. I love camellias. The white ones are so beautiful.
    I have a very similar one,Single petals that spiral out like that with a dip in the middle of the outer petal. I think it has a different name so may be one of the species that it came from.
    No frosts here, it is so, so hot.
    Hugs Kay

    1. Dearest Kay,
      Camellias are a very pretty and happy flower. There are so many species cultivated and they might derive from the same parent. This one seems to be used for the Camellia oil, from which e.g. shampoo is being made.
      Oh sure, you are in mid summer that is the opposite of what here is going on, especially in the North they have had a rough and harsh winter.
      Hugs,

  8. Hello Mariette, This is in the great spirit of plant exchange. People regret the lack of frontiers, but there is so much waiting to be discovered or rediscovered in our own yards. The happy result, in your case, is a beautiful collection of rare trees.

      Oh sure, we both felt honored that somebody from the Gainesville University via Kanapaha Botanical Gardens found us via Google+ due to my blogs about our very rare Grandview Gold, Golden Live Oak. In exchange we did receive quite a collection of beautiful and rare trees. Both are happy and we hope that this gentleman will succeed in propagating our rare species.
      Hugs to you and thanks for your loyal and thorough reading!

      Thank you and hope it did bring you some long distance spring feeling! Oh, living in your area, after our 3 winters of living in the tropics right on the equator would be very tough. The lack of daylight and sunshine is really hard on humans and animals alike. Hope you find yourself interesting things to do, for distracting your mind.
      Wishing you warmth and cozyness!

  12. Dearest Mariette, this is a beautiful blossom, so delicate. Thanks for sharing. Just resting today...had my pacer battery changed out on Friday. Wasn't really bad but I am just uncomfortable. Think I am canceling an engagement on Tuesday. Not sure about clothes just yet.
    Blessed day for you and Pieter.

  17. Dear Mariette, very beautiful. As you said, any bloom in winter is a bonus. Actually, the flower reminds of white trillium, the symbolic flower of Ontario, Canada.

  18. Any blossoms in winter sure is a bonus :-) Lovely flowers, the petals are kind of heart-shaped and look so pretty! It is very warm and nice here this weekend, but I heard it gets colder again in the coming week. Your Camellia Yuhsienesis must be happy to stay inside the greenhouse :-)
    Stay warm and have a lovely new week!

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      Indeed those notched petals make them look like hearts and that makes them stand out.
      Oh, here too and the birds are singing and maybe think it's spring and start nesting...
      Sure, such a baby camellia needs to be sheltered at a young age. Later they can harden off a bit more but not for now.
      We try to stay warm indeed, hope we will not get any more winter...
      Hugs and happy new week to you.

  22. My dearest friend Mariette,
    Your Camellia Yuhsienensis is awesome! I bet it is going to look so beautiful once it matures enough to be outside in your garden. To read this post, it helps me to overcome the winter blues, since my daughters "left the nest" to study and work in AB, it is harder for me to deal with winter time. I'm looking forward for the spring time. Send you a big hug with lots of love, have a wonderful Sunday,
    Laura :-)

    1. Dearest Laura,
      Thanks dear friend for the compliment and it indeed is looking very beautiful. Once it will mature it will have quite a showcase of blossoms.
      Winter blues one almost gets indeed. On my Mom's birthday our Japanese magnolias usually bloom but not this year. That is telling you that spring has been delayed by at least one week. We hardly can wait to see color and green grass again!
      It is tough dealing with an empty nest, I have that rudderless feeling each time when our guests leave home again. That takes me about a week for getting used to the quietness and the routine of not setting a table for four or more... The older we get probably the more sentimental we get as well.
      Hope your Sunday was at least a bit 'sunny' and wishing you a pleasant new week!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

      If it wasn't for the greenhouse we never would be able to keep those tender babies alive... It is being used only for sheltering those tropical plants or any pots with tender young ones. A lot of work bringing them all in and out but its the only way...
      Hugs to you and yes, the Jury Garden from New Zealand did show this species very nicely.
