Camellias in The Brenham House Gardens
First of the season!
This is the start of our Winter Friends...
Camellias our Southern Belles!
Single-petaled pink flowers that grow on upright bushes.
Cold hardy these flowers give color to your winter gardens!
Later to come at The Brenham House will be our "Lu Shan Snow",
"Spring Sonnet" and "Reverand John Bennett" camellias.
These Asian beauties arrived in the United States around 1798.
