White Rose of Winter

I am grateful for the winter blooms of ‘White by the Gate’, Camellia japonica.

If it were not for the nip in the air I would swear it was spring by looking at it in full bloom.

This steadfast bloomer is striking with its dark green, glossy leaves and pure white, double blooms.

Could it be any more beautiful?
