Camellia japonica 'Korean Flame'
Saturated red flowers appear identical to 'Korean Fire', but the surrounding leaves are subtly variegated. Considering its parentage, this should boast great cold hardiness (Zone 6a), though it has yet to be tested. **If you are growing this cultivar in Zones 6a/b or 7a, we'd love to hear how it's doing!
