SPEAKING OF CAMELIAS, this one is ‘Freedom Bell’ and we planted it in 1996. The petals are a deep pink-red with prominent veining and not the usually round shaped petals. It is quite striking. We brought it home in a one gallon container and the tag stated a maximum height of six feet in ten years; it tops out now at just over five feet.  It begins blooming in February and the flowers stand up pretty well to winter and spring rains. It is loaded with flowers and still to open buds. One more camelia left to bloom around May.
