Camillia edithae and Camellia lutchuensis: the buds are swelling

It won't be long now. I liked the buds on C. edithae when they were just rough brown balls. They're actually quite attractive now. I guess the question is, will this one 7b plant survive here? I'll stack a few cuttings this summer just in case, but we're definitely going to try it. C. lutchuensis is renowned for fragrance; I can't wait. It is likely only hardy here in sheltered microclimates but we're going to try it too.
