Avery Island's Jungle Gardens - pam-and-edmund-mcilhenny

We may never know with certainty the names of some of the camellias growing in Jungle Gardens, particularly those growing in an area that was E. A. McIlhenny's nursery, where he experimented with new varieties. These camellias were often grown from seedlings, not true to the original, and not named if they were never moved from the nursery to the mainstream parts of Jungle Gardens. Named or unnamed, they are among the most beautiful flowers on Avery Island.
