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 Japonica x Franklinia alatamaha cross from Dr. Ackerman
I'm just posting a photograph to monitor the progress of the bud. Like many C. japonica cultivars and the species itself, the bud is swelling as the days lengthen. It's showing pink petal edges. I can't wait.
