Plant of the month, January 2024

As winter persists, the garden defies the season, bursting with an abundance of flowers, signaling the onset of spring.

Plant of the month for January is Camellia x williamsii ‘St Ewe’

The perception is that we are in the bleak mid winter but a stroll around the garden would soon change your opinion. There is an abundance of flower around, almost too much for the time of as spring is definitely starting to spring! My choice for my first plant of the month of 2024 is:

Camellia x williamsii ‘St Ewe’. This stunning camellia flowers its heart out what ever the weather throws at it. She flowers in snow and ice, survived the #beastfromtheeast to put on a truly stunning display that will last for at least another month (it started flowering before Christmas) If you only have room for one camellia this is it.
