Interesting writeup on color description  (search internet for pics – they are there) from Plant LustWhile this camellia is supposed to be pure white, it frequently sports blooms with flirty little pinkish-red stripes and spots. The medium to large flowers have swirled and fluted petals and, when fully open, the centers boast bright yellow stamens that shine against the white petals. Compact in habit, this plant blooms early to mid-season.
