Bloomin’ perfect camellias on display at flower show

THE MOST bloomin' perfect camellias were on display at the garden city's much-anticipated Camellia and Winter Flower Show.

The 12th annual show was declared a success by organisers with 'phenomenal' numbers coming through the doors on Saturday and Sunday.

Organising committee member Colin Fitzgerald said this was the first year the show had been opened to garden centres and had every local garden centre and every nursery and grower in the whole area attend as well as 40 stalls.

Mr Fitzgerald was also proud to have won the champion's prize for his camellia reticulata Dr Clifford Parks.

"There is something for everyone, very much a community spirit to the show, I think mainly because all the proceeds go to the Toowoomba Hospice," he said.

The show also included the first Queensland showing of a new hybrid Pinktastic camellia which features beautiful double flowers.
