‘Budding’ Ballerina Assists With Camellia Show Release

The Toowoomba Camellia Show and Garden Expo Committee has announced the name of a brand new hybrid camellia at Coroneos Nursery, 266 Herries Street, Toowoomba.

A limited quantity of the new ‘Ballerina’ sasanqua will be on sale for the first time during the 2017 Camellia Show, and then from Coroneos Nursery. The Toowoomba Hospice will receive $5 from your purchase of each camellia.

The Ballerina is an upright and slender shrub, making the variety a perfect choice for that narrow garden bed, against a wall or even an elegant pot. This beautiful camellia is early flowering, producing delicate white formal flowers with light pink edges and a hint of perfume.
