For this week’s In a Vase on Monday, I am delighted to share the first three blooms from my Camellia japonica ‘Debutante.’
A brief background story: ‘Debutante’ did not do well in the place I first planted it, and I was afraid that I was losing it. I moved it to my “wayward plant hospital,” a place at the edge of the woods in back of my garden that became the home to plants that needed a second chance before the compost heap. ‘Debutante’ not only survived but has thrived in its new location. These colorful blossoms speak to the wisdom of giving plants (and people) a second chance.
Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and others are sharing in their vases this week.
