Just planted two in Bluffton, SC 2/2017; MANY blooms even in mid-Feb. Has 3 hrs. morning sun and warm location when summer comes. Hoping it can take summer sun. Zone 8

Camellia Coral Delight (C. japonica C. saluenensis). Very floriferous variety, ideal for milder climates.

I have not had this Camellia in my garden very long but it is a very good bloomer and the blossoms are vibrant enough to be seen well from a distance in a shady location. It should be a slow grower. Large blossoms.
