Please help me ID Sasanqua

lsst(7b)December 12, 2012

This Sasanqua is blooming in Camden, SC and the owners gave me cuttings.

The house has over thirty trees blooming in the front yard and it is beautiful!

The trees had been planted by the previous owners in the 1970's.
The tallest tree is about 15 feet tall.

The blooms are very ruffled and pale pink. I did not see any traces of white. As the bloom matures the petals look
more spiky. The pic is of a more mature bloom.

I have my propagation chamber all set in hopes to root the cuttings.

Thanks in advance!

Don't know but it's nice! Light pink is a fairly common color for sasanqua. It could even be a volunteer seedling --and therefore would not have a name.
