Camellia help

Coushatta, LA

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.

Camellia japonica I hope

Waihi, New Zealand(Zone 1)

Looks very much like Camelia Japonica Odoratissima

Coushatta, LA

It was planted by my aunt in the 1960's. The flowers are huge.

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

I found a bit of info....the first link has hundreds of images...the next two are more Louisiana specific. Hope these help.

Could it be Adolphe Audusson?

The flower looks close and this camellia has been around since 1877 so it is possible...Check out this closeup pic for comparison
