It reminds me of Weston's Lollipop and Ben Morrison but the red streaks seen too dark red (assuming the color is true on the photo). But wow, it is a very nice bloom, longriver.

It is the true color, very deep red. I think you give me a key of possibility of the parentage. I also think it was a new seedling flower, picture-taken from a huge azalea hybridization nursery in China. They have over thousands of new seedlings under evaluation. I was told that azalea seedlings can produce the first flower in their second year. Yet a camellia seedling would take about 5 years to see the first flower.

It is semi-double, meaning some stamens have been transformed completely or partially into petals, usually smaller than the outside corolla petals, and commonly contorted. One such plant is:

Azalea ÂB. HenryÂs Dwarf  (Crow Haven) [Late, -5°F, Low] This is a sport of ÂOsakazuki with very small leaves, peachy pink, single and semi-double flowers. Introduced by Crow Haven Farms in Oregon.
