It's often said that the Camellia is the Queen of Winter and the Rose the Queen of Springtime but in my climate their reigns overlap! The result is a Regal clash! When I was a child I was spellbound by a Camellia in the garden of my school, it was planted next to a beautiful red Rosebush and I always imagined them as rival Queens, like two Operatic Divas on stage trying to outsing one another! Something like the duel of the Queens in Donizetti's Maria Stuarda!
The Camellia and the Rose: ¿Who do you think is more beautiful?
