An attractive little Camellia that has beautiful, pale pink, scented flowers that are in a miniature peony form. Glossy green foliage offsets the flowers well. A slow grower with a compact habit making it ideal for container growing.

2020 – First flowers at the beginning of April. Always as disappointing in season. Well watered in summer… just to see.

2019 – First flowers at the end of March. Still disappointing this season.

2018- Covered with buds mid February. In bloom at the end of March. A little disappointing.

2017- Covered with buds mid February but some are already starting to fall. In bloom late March-early April.

2016 – First flower at the beginning of March. March 23rd: 3 flowers only! Really starts to bloom at the end of March. All in bloom early April. But flowers not badly “rusty”. Finally quite disappointing.  In bud in November.

2015 – First flower on March 12. Transplanted to the Mixed border Southeast in mid-May. In bud in November.

2014- Transplanted in the fall under the pergola, makes a lot of flower buds, which remain as buds all autumn and winter …

Planted in the old hedge, has vegetated for several years.
