The Daily Hex: Japonica


We are joining the spring parade with this Japonica-filled gallery in today’s The Daily Hex!

What’s a ‘hex’ anyway?
Hex actually pertains to hex values, which are 6-digit hexidecimal numbers that are primarily used in web design. Your photographs can be viewed by hex values and we have almost 1,500 common colors that you can browse through, most of which have names that are quirky, goofy, and downright weird. But don’t be fooled, these colors are real eye candies, too!

Today’s The Daily Hex is very close to the rosy pink color of Camellia japonica, a variety of flowering tree that can grow as tall as 11 meters. It is also referred to as the Rose of Winter because it usually blooms in places with cold climates such as Japan, Korea, China, and Taiwan.

Well, if you haven’t seen a Camellia japonica in person, let these handpicked Japonica Lomographs give you an idea of how lovely this flower is:
