A while ago, I wrote about a garden that wins the award for Most Small Trees and Shrubs on a Small Lot. I thought I packed the plants in, but this gardener has all kinds of tricks up their sleeve, having created mounds of soil to plant more where there is most likely a solid mass of roots below the surface. I debated before whether this garden was a labor of love or an all out obsession, but seeing it in winter leaves me leaning away from the OCD theory and toward a gardener who is in love with interesting trees and shrubs. Anyone with this many good winter-interest plants was clearly planning ahead.
I’m guessing some sort of single camelia, I’m not familiar with it, but it’s unusual, and I can get behind that.
Update: Cindee at Moonstone Gardens identified this plant for me as C. ‘Spring’s Promise’
I have to give them credit, they’ve packed a lot of interest packed in a small space.
