This was here when we bought the place so I have no idea of the plants age. It is roughly 5' tall now growing in shade under the cedars & oaks. It has been blooming now for about a month and is now reaching it's peak with many buds still to open.
This first photo is the exact color of the bloom. I sat here & held a bloom up to my monitor & it was a perfect match however, we all know monitors differ so you might see a different shade on yours.

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I can not name your camellia, but perhaps these links will help you get an ID. I do know it is considered to be a rose/double rose form flower. The second link might be able to ID from your picture. They have 1200 cultivars there.

Thank you Jean! I will pursue the matter. I *do* love the rose/double rose flower form.

@flaflwrgrl We have 12 camellia bushes in FL. Unfortunately, I never asked my brother their names. Of course, our family never threw anything away so perhaps some day I will find the invoice for them with their names! Sighing!

Names or not, they are still beautiful Jean so just enjoy them.

The white one was blooming when we left DeLand the first of December, as well as the last one.

Beautiful Jean! Hurray!

Mine is blooming like gangbusters right now but come Wednesday night I'm afraid all the blooms are going to bite the dust. It's to be 26 that night & they're going to freeze & that will be that. Last year the freezes got them too. Sad

Sorry about the freeze, Ann. I don't know how mine are doing, but hope to see some of them when we get back.
