Camellia Species seen in Atlanta during my visit in Oct,18.

Camellia sasanqua?

Camellia sasanqua ‘Kanjiro’.


Camellia Species seen at the garden in October, 2018.

Try to check with Camellia japonica

Please look at Camellia sasanqua; they bloom earlier than some others.

Sorry, I used the old name, please look at C. oleifera.

Thanks for the correct name.

Pl. check Camellia sasanqua ‘Setsugekka’, you have suggested in another post from Atlanta.

Pl. see

These white flowers were very close to another plant with light pink flowers named as Camellia sasanqua ‘Daydream’.

This was probably a faded flower of the same?

This does not appear to be faded to me

Then must be something very close to  Camellia sasanqua ‘Daydream’.
