Does anyone know the name of this camellia? It has looked really good with the blue pansies this year.

Without a closer shot, it is just a wild guess, but it looks like it could be a "debutante".

Here is a shot of a debutante that I took...
What do you think? Similar?

Here is the best picture of all that I took this morning. The black spots are fire ants!

And a description: The outer row of petals are relatively flat, then the second tier of petals are ruffled and white striped, then the last row of petals are flat with a white strip down the middle of each petal. I don't think it is 'Debutante', unless it is a sport.

RE: Camellia identification w/ pic

it is somewhat reminiscent of 'dr. tinsley' in form and color. i have seen pics of the plant with slight variations in color, but the form is always the same.
that "white stripe" might just be where the petal was in a fold before it opened.
here is a typical photo of the flower. it is a popular, old cultivar, widely planted in the south.
not a spot on match, so it might be another cultivar.

Try to spot it on either of these two sites. There are about a zillion pink ones and I want all of them!!!


RE: Camellia identification w/ pic

I have spent alot of time looking at the pictures on the ACS website, and I think that I have C. japonica cv. Wildwood. But I think that I also have a sport which is what I took a picture of. Many of the flowers on my plant look exactly like Wildwood. Of course, I haven't been able to find anything on google or yahoo about the introduction date, etc., so I ain't positive, but I'm pretty sure that is what I've got. Thank you for responding. Ken
