Well, with all the mild weather here, my Satzuki's look like they are going to bloom early. Here is a preview of things to come. The first one is a new procurement, I have been eyeing this one for some time. It was in a small garden at my church and we took in the small garden to put in a larger Memorial garden. The garden designers didn't find this shrub pretty enough for the new garden. Just my luck! So it was given to me. It is a small shrub and I will have to reduce it. But since I haven't seen this variety for sell much, I am going to air layer off the branches that I will be removing. I believe it is Komane, the blooms are described as camellia-like and you can see why. That is my grubby little finger for referance.
