Camellia japonica 'Benten-kagura'
"Dance of Goddess of Luck" (trans.) is a mutation of 'Daikagura': irregularly shaped, gray-green leaves have uneven, pale yellow to white edges. 'Benten-kagura' is not for the faint-of-heart- slow, leggy, wide-open growth requires special attention, and potted plants (as they're grown at the Nursery) often look less-than-stellar.
