I tried searching for tree rose but am baffled by the stump size in image 1.
I don’t have higher resolution images.
The multiple colours look like some grafting was done.
Can someone pls explain in detail what we seem to have here and how this has been achieved.
Looks like some species of Camellia to me. Not rose.
nice bushy “Tree”… I agree with ..: dense leathery leaves are that of camellia… and flowers none too
I can’t get this ‘tree’ out of my head 🙂
did you take this video? when? and do you know mr proctor? How does he manage Biodynamic farming in these modern days? DOes he still bury cow horns full of nutrition in the soil and develop ‘ fertilizer’ as done in the beginning of biodynamic farming? Would love to know….

One more shot of the plant
It could be Camelia species.
It does look like from some of the images available on google.

Sir there is this Hotel City forest behind the UN office at Srinagar. We stayed there for a week. This was planted there at the front. I was so fascinated by this one like a lotus on a tree
May be Camellia japonica L.
