ID please- Camellia Forest heat tolerant

CF sold this as heat tolerant and it certainly is. I'm in N La and it has done well. I know ID's are a long shot. They said that they don't know where it came from or the name. I moved house last year and planted it and didn't take very good care of it and this year it has exploded and is already 3ft tall. It did not die back this winter but it only got down to 29F. I don't think it is an 'Angel's Earring' since I have one too- this one is much more shrubby and much bigger too. Any ideas?

I want one!

Despite the hot night temps and a couple of days at 100F it is still blooming and looking very good. I haven't even fertilized it which I really need to do, it might do even a little better than it's doing now. The 'Cascading Angel's Earrings' doesn't have as big of flowers as this one either. I'm really amazed.
