I got a very nice red Camellia japonica - 'Kouya-komachi' last year. Its first bulb has grown to change the color in red from green. This species is very much rare and difficult to nurse; it is classified very fragile to heat and cold wind. It is always expected to bloom around the late spring, but this time it is almost blooming within January. I'm really excited to wait for its blossom.
