This southern belle has a long history,
 dating back to before the civil war!
Do you suppose the famous line in "Gone With The Wind",
"frankly Scarlett, I don't give a damn" was because 
Scarlett wanted Rhett to water her camellias!  ;)
All kidding aside, they do well in and mild to warm climates,
we have them in California. The picture of the Frank Hauser is 
from a friend's garden and the one's below are from my yard.
