"The most beautiful of all Camellias". This is how this species is presented by nurserists around the world. It is a hardy, erect shrub, up to 15 ft tall, with a very dark foliage. The leaves are shiny and leathery, though not very large. It blooms on spring, when the big, double form, pink flowers show up. This hybrid produces lots of flowers during this 3 month period.

It needs regular watering, and full to partial sun.
