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.

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

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