Camellia japonica 'April Dawn'
The candy-striped flowers of 'April Dawn' are mostly white with a few deep pink streaks; though occasional branch sports will result in varying color patterns, such as half white/half pink. A Camellia Forest Introduction, 1993.
The jumping gene that creates the striped pattern is rather unstable for 'April Dawn'; with time, you can expect to see solid red blooms.
