Camellia japonica 'April Blush'
'April Blush' grows into the classic Camellia bush with deep green leaves and shell-pink, semi-double blooms. It sets buds freely and flowers in mid-season. The relatively slow growth guarantees dense leaves and a plant of smaller stature. A Camellia Forest Introduction, 1993.
