Our Red Kramer Camellia is full of buds. Red camellias are a symbol of wealth and so they are rightly grown in P&B's Garden. Some history I found on Monrovia's website lists that camellias represent longevity and faithfulness and have long been a primary floral component in Asian weddings. I cannot wait until next week to post the flower in full bloom.
To wealth, longevity and faithfulness in 2010. Happy New Year.
