Bob. These are three different camellias blooming at the same time on a very old shrub: white and pink, deep pink, and pale pink. This is an example of sporting.

gloria yours looks almost the same as mine. Mine has from the first time it bloomed showed different colored bloom. I wonder why in some threads you can send photos and some you can't.

For some reason there is no
"browse" button in reply to a thread attached to the articles. There is probably a good technical reason for it.

Bob. when you bought your camellia did you expect it to have multicolor blooms on the same shrub?

I just came across this thread. It is a fairly common practice around here to graft different cultivars onto one plant.

This one is a sport - a genetic mutation. they are very common on old camellias here
