Very reliable fall bloomer in 9B Florida. A good variety for us where spring bloomers often bullnose or suffer in a too hot spring.

This is an autumn blooming Camellia, cultivated in several places in Rio de Janeiro - one of the vew cultivars of C. japonica that can take constantly high temperatures. When blooming, it has lots of very big, double form, white flowers that contrast with the dark foliage. A real beauty.
