Superior variety.

Year-round, attractive, relatively compact shrub (5' tall x 2.5" wide) in San Francisco Bay Area. Slow growing so that if you buy it in a 5 gallon, it will take 5+ years to reach that size. Perfectly floriferous, with perfectly spaced, perfectly formed blushing pink 2.5" flowers all over the plant.

Of course, like most camellias it's subject to petal blight (browning of the flower, especially after it's been in bloom a while. It's helpful if you plant camellias under an eave so little rain gets on it. Utterly disease-free.

If you live in a camellia-friendly climate, this is a go-to variety.
