Cornus kousa var.chinensis

Conus kousa var.chinensis at Trewithen Gardens in Cornwall

A surprise not to receive any votes but a worthy contender none the less

2nd place with 13% of the votes, goes to:…

Rhododendron nuttallii

Meaning the winner, with a huge 87% of the votes, is…

Camellia transnokoensis

She was “Plant of the Month” in January and is flowering in the garden as i write this.

A worthy winner.
