Camellia reticulata 'Wandin Sebire'
It is the time of year when Camellias are at their best and the path outside my door is littered with spent blooms.Today I went to the 60th annual Illawarra Camellia Show which is always enjoyable because every year is different in that some blooms are outstanding and really catch your eye and others are not performing as well as might be expected all probably due to the unpredictable nature of the weather. I will post some photos of what I thought were the highlights over the coming days
This one is interesting because it is an Australian cultivar having been bred by Edgar Sebire and released in 1977. It was named after Edgar's father Wandin and is also the name of the district in Melbourne which he founded.
