Beautiful and tough
by Zone 10 Bev, February 29, 2020

My Pearl Maxwell camellia has been growing under a big crepe myrtle for the last 14 years, through 100 degree heat and near freezing cold, drowning rains and years of drought. No bugs, no diseases and no problems-- and I\'ve enjoyed the lovely pink blooms every February!
