This camellia has been blooming along the camellia row in Mobile Botanical Gardens for the last three weeks. It is absolutely gorgeous; bright rose pink, eye catching, and loaded with blossoms. It is about five feet high and three feet wide in what I would call an open habit.

This hybrid is hardy on zone 7 and above. It has medium to large, semi double flowers, with open, dark pink petals, with lighter tips. It has a dense group of small, yellow stamens in the middle. The flowers looks like an wild rose, hence the variety name.
