If it's flowering now that cuts out a lot as there are fewer autumn flowering Camellias. It looks like Camellia × vernalis 'Yuletide', however I can't be certain as there are others which look much the same. As Nuccio is a well known grower it stands a good chance.

My first thought was Camellia (Camellia sasanqua 'Yuletide')

'Spring Promise' is a winter/spring bloomer: http://www.piedmontcarolina.com/plants/camellia/camellia-jap...

We have one listed in the database as Camellia (Camellia japonica 'Spring's Promise')

I think the correct name/spelling is probably Spring's Promise:

Sasanqua Camellias bloom in the fall. Yuletide is among the later bloomers and has larger flowers than most of the other sasanquas.. Their growth habit is more upright. If the color of your picture is accurate, it's pinker than Yuletide, but if your camera's color representation is off (as most are w/ reds and blues), it could be. The amount of blooms and foliage shape would suggest Yuletide.
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.
