I have this in a larage pot but hoping to plant it out when it's finished flowering. 

Camellia 'White Swan' seemed to take forever to flower but now that it has it's been worth the wait. Beautiful crisp white blooms. Although they then brown very quickly once the flowers fade and they do look awful. But for now I'm delighted with them

C. 'Debbie' is still a good bit behind. But hopefully it will flower soon too. 

It's a fabulous day here now so going to try and get some time out there later. Enjoy your day whatever you do.

The white flowers against the dark green of the leaves is beautiful. I grow a few white camellias and it is a pity the  way they become blemished.

It doesn't seem to matter where you have them the flowers do go off badly but they are beautiful  for awhile and worth deheading
