This hardy camellia produces large, semi-double orchid pink flowers.
These flowers are produced in abundance and from a very early age.
The deep dark green shiny foliage is like a sasanqua rather than a japonica.
It forms a compact and very bushy shrub to approximately 2 metres.
It tends to be slower growing than most camellias.
It has long been considered one of the finest camellias ever bred.
