Identification of historical Camellia
Any ideas on the identification of this camellia?
It is pure white, with blooms 3.5 inches across. The bushes/trees are next to a semi-derelict historic cottage, built by a Japanese settler family in SW British Columbia, Canada (in the mild Pacific Northwest coastal climate). It was probably planted in the 1930s or 1950s but are still only 5m (16-17 feet) high, with thin rather greyish trunks. This year it is in full bloom now (16 April).
I've posted a set of photos on flickr:
Any ideas as to what this camellia might be would be very gratefully received!
