Sweetly fragrant. Camellia ‘Sweet Emily Kate’ features charming, small, blush pink flowers, 3 in. wide (7 cm), shading to pale pink at their heart. The pleasing peony form of the blooms allows for an elegant mix of raised petals and petaloids (small petals). The exquisite flowers are happily produced over a fairly long period extending from mid to late season (January to May in the northern hemisphere; June to October in the southern hemisphere). The luxuriant evergreen foliage of glossy, dark green leaves is handsome year-round. ‘Sweet Emily Kate’ is a Camellia hybrid resulting from the cross of Camellia japonica and Camellia lutchuensis.
