Every time I visit the Descanso Garedens I see a variety of camellia I had never noticed before. This flower is my favorite so far. I love the color and elaborate, ruffly centers. The mature blooms are as big as my hand.
The gardens aren’t that big but they are latticed with footpaths, and there is always more to discover. Here is video I shot with my 5D Mark ii of a camellia swirling in a babbling brook off one of the footpaths.
