One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Camellia oleifera, Tea Oil Camellia, is one of the hardiest, occasionally sneaking into USDA Zone 6
These plants are in full bloom across the road from the sign marking the entrance to the Camellia Collection. They were covered with bees and yellow jackets today. This is one of the fall flowering camellias that has a pleasant fragrance.
