An Otome-tsubaki (Camellia japonica var. decumbens) flower in Kaizo-ji temple

As spring approaches its height, Tsubaki (camellia), which is a typical and outstanding winter blooming plant in Kita-kamakura, is gradually drawing to the end of its flowering season.

Neat and elegant Otome-tsubaki (i.e. maiden camellia) flowers add a beautiful final touch to our pleasant memory of the flamboyant winter flowers of Tsubaki.
