Just a few more....

Camellia japonica 'Gay Chieftain'
This is a beautiful small flowering variety. The variegation of the petals is terrific. I like the stripes and blush appearance as well as the way the petals flare out around the stamens becoming almost trumpet shaped.

Camellia japonica 'Debbie'
Camellia japonica 'Katie'
There are not many flowers which are shocking pink and as bright as these two above.
 Camellia japonica 'White Button'
Another small flowering variety which is just showing a few pink stripes. Lovely form

  1. In high school, my principal was a Camellia breeder of some note. He complained of the "weeds" he had to contend with - unwanted seedlings of this genus. Ever since I have been entranced by their beauty! Great pictures and a fine spectrum of varieties.
