Please help me ID Sasanqua

lsst(7b)December 19, 2012

This is a cross post. I asked this in the camellia forum about a week ago and maybe someone here might know what camellia this might be.

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!

Thanks,

I am about to give up and just call it my Camden camellia!
I am propagating about 30 stems so hopefully I will get a few plants out of it.
