What a great article and photos. I thought I would comment just briefly about the multi colored.
I am a professional propagator and have been investigating growing some camellias. The multi colored bush may have occurred by natural sporting or if it is quite old, it may have been grafted to acheive that result as this was in fashion in the 30's & 40's I am told. I have found this occurring fairly often in the old cultivars I have been scouting in landscapes that were established in the 1900's - 1950's (the cultivars I am seeking out), some seem random but others appear to be very old grafts, in no old graft was detectable as the trunk had grown so large, but the pattern of colors was very organized suggesting it was by design and not accident. Again, thoroughly enjoyed your article. Jane
