All of the Pink Without Any of the Crying!

If I accused iris breeders of not knowing how to name their creations — and I basically did — then I must congratulate whatever camellia aficionado decided on the name for a specimen I saw at the Hungtington.

Spanked Baby is one of the best names for anything ever. Sir or madam, I am in your debt.


  1. It looks like the petals of a "Spanked Baby" are light pink. Perhaps, they were named that because their color resembles the color of a baby's post-spanked bum....Just a thought.

  2. Yeah, I'm sure you're right. Still, I have to appreciate the mind that sees that color pink as thinks "inflamed baby bottom."
