Camellia 'Winter's Cupid' (white) and 'Winter's Fire' (pink)
The fall camellias are beautiful this week. If you're near DC and you've got an hour or so, it'll be a great weekend to see the Camellia Collection. These two are Arboretum releases, hardy through USDA Zone 7. They aretwo of the many hybrids created by Dr. William Ackerman to extend the range of camellias north.
