Camellia sasanqua

This Camellia sasanqua is going over now. It’s been blooming since September. Mine is 4 years old and about 8′ high. There is one down the road that is about 15′ high and has been pruned into a multi-trunk tree.

I don’t know the variety. I thought it was in my notebook, but I can’t find it. Might it be ‘Pink Snow’? Can anyone enlighten me?

The petals fall to the ground (beautifully mulched with pine straw) in a pale pink carpet that looks like snow.

I love it.
