Incredible bloom on Camellia reticulata 'Frank Houser Variegated'. Gibberellic acid can be applied to individual flower buds to force the plant to bloom earlier and enlarge the bloom size. #newhanovercounty #nhcarboretum #camellia #winterblooms #flowers #plantsofinstagram #plants #beauty #gardening #variegated

Sasanquas combine stunning autumn flowers with handsome foliage and are easy to grow. I can attest to that. I most definitely do not have a green thumb but this camellia is in bloom in my yard. It is absolutely gorgeous. If you don't have a yard these versatile plants can also be grown in pots and will provide a backdrop of color throughout the drab winter months.
