We have been quite impressed with the way the pink flower buds and white flowers are arranged along the young stems. Multiple buds are set at each node and the flowers generally face downwards. The flowers are 1 to 1.5 inches across and are strongly fragrant (for a Camellia). The leaves are very small, only slightly over an inch long, and this gives the plant a very fine texture. The plant is found in Hunan, Guizhou, and Jiangxi provinces of China, so we expect it to have some cold hardiness. Open-pollinated seedlings.
