Gloria have you ever seen this Camellia before. I bought it about 5 or 6 years ago and If I remember right it was called Camellia japonica 'Hawiaan Rainbow' and it has about 5 different colored blooms. It usually blooms in early March. This photo was taken about two years ago.

Bob: No Ive not seen that camellia. I know about Rosa mutabalis that has several different colors on the same bush. And my own old camellias often have different colors of camellias on the same bush due to sporting on the old wood. But, Ive never seen a camellia that was deliberately bred to have several colors at once.

Apparently I have to start a new thread to download the photo.
