Last but certainly not least on my list of white-flowering bushes are Camellias.

Camellias are one of my favorite all-time plants.

They have gorgeous flowers, they’re evergreen, grow in the shade and they bloom at a time when not much else is blooming. What’s not to love?

I also realized that I already own a white flowering Camellia. It has been growing in one of my raised beds waiting to be transplanted to its forever home. And I think this is the first year that it has bloomed.

Now that I know I have one, I need to figure out the best place for it in my garden.
