I bought this as a young plant from Trehane camellia nursery, UK, in January 1999. It is quite a strong grower, but remains a nicely shaped, upright, compact plant. The leaves are quite large, have a slight serrated edge, and are a healthy, glossy dark green of good substance.
The flowers are large, full paeony form up to 5 inches across. I have not seen a colour in any other camellia that is as vibrant a pink-red as this, it really seems to glow.
It has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit, and has been given a hardiness rating of H4, the equivalent to USDA zone 7.
