Hello. My name is Maria and I live in Rome, Italy
I am a Container Gardener with over 100 plants in pots on my terrace. As you can imagine, I spend a lot of time looking after them.
I have several roses (Buff beauty, Prosperity, Graham Thomas, Gruss an Aachen, Compassion...).
I also have Camellias (I am fond of them!), Osmathus (I like so much their perfume!), vines,
Jasminum and Clematis.
My Camellias are ‘Alba plena’,
a Japonica with beautiful, pure white flowers. In 2002 it started blooming in November. The pot is under a small gazebo, with a Clematis Armandii. The previous year they bloomed together, the result was amazing! I dreamed of Vita S.-West?s white gardens...
I also have two C. Sasanqua. They have pink flowers, slightly perfumed, that look like butterfly’s wings. I have another Japonica, but I don’t know its name
