Camellia x williamsii 'Ballet in Pink'
This plant performs like a 4th of July fireworks finale. Even young plants open flowers at each node along the stem so that the branch is completely covered by orchid pink blooms. The peony form flowers and shape of the plant are typical of the C. x williamsii hybrids, which means it's also quite dieback resistant. The leaves have reticulate veins and are quite leathery.
