These camellias are growing at my mother-in-law's. She loves camellias but doesn't know the name of them. These photos were all taken on April 1st, near Charlotte, NC.

Cam #3 appears to my eye to be Lady van Sittart (or, at least, what is sold in Northern Virginia as "Lady van Sittart".

Oops. Meant to add that Cam # 1 reminds me of Bella Rosa and Cams 7&8 resemble Pink Perfection. Hope that helps.

Cam #3 reminds me of April Dawn and Eleanor McCown. My EM sported a lot (pink blooms) until the dogs and the squirrels had a spat.

I think the "Camellia No.2" is Camellia Japonica ÂBlood of ChinaÂ. You can see the picture of my "Blood of China."

There are many beautiful camellias as the No. 1 Camellia. Red, formal or double form incomplete (some stamens can be seen when the flower is fully open). You can see the picture of "Mathotianas." and "Bella Rosa".
Flower size No.1?. Flowering time camellia Nº 1?

The photos are misleading. You can see the two pictures of "Mary Phoebe Taylor" and "Coquettina." In the pictures you can not see that one is 15 cm. (6 inches) and the other is 5-6 cm. (2 inches).
Some flowers are so unique, that are easy to identify.
Only with photographs, many camellia flowers are difficult to identify. Even seeing them on the ground, it is very difficult. There are many flowers same or similar. Therefore, it is good, indicating the size, timing of flowering and growth habit of the plant. The leaves also help to identify. Greetings.
