Camellia Hedge in Bloom Blooming beautiful camellia hedge in Oamaru Public Gardens, East Otago, New Zealand. This is a very long hedge, and this section had by far the most flowers.

It was beautiful in the late evening sunshine. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I love camellias, but have never seen a whole hedge of them – beautiful! We cannot have them where I live – too cold.

Queens Park in Invercargill has a wonderful array of different varieties and it’s so interesting to see the different flower shapes and colours. They also have one type of camellia espaliered along a brick wall – it looks wonderful when in flower (as it was last time I visited). LikeLike Reply Wish I could have them here as well! Glad you gave us some tasting there!
