Does anyone know which camellia cultivar this is? It is over forty years old so it is not a new one. Sometimes it has white in the flowers.
Looks very much like Camelia Japonica Odoratissima
I found a bit of info....the first link has hundreds of images...the next two are more Louisiana specific. Hope these help.
This is a link to images of over 800 Camellias
This is a link to BR Camellia society....maybe they can be of help in ID
There are a number of named images here at the BR Camellia site...this is a slide show with over 160 named camellias from our area
The flower looks close and this camellia has been around since 1877 so it is possible...Check out this closeup pic for comparison
