Grace Albritton Camellia. This is one of those old popular C. japonica cultivars which has formal double flowers, mostly white to pale pink with deeper pink outer edges to its petals. It is typical with many Camellia cultivars to have many different floral forms that are slightly different to the "accepted" norm. This is one of those plants. Thanks to Green's Nursery in Alabama for these pictures. As a plant it is compact and upright and flowers in late winter to early spring. It does quite well in a container. But when planting, always plant shallow, as with all Camellias. And 1" too deep is "too deep." I would not mind actually exposing some of the top roots and then mulching with a good organic material such as pine straw or bark. Once a Camellia becomes well established in the landscape, it can be the most drought tolerant of plants. I have seen any number of plants around old homesteads where they have been neglected for decades and the Camellias are thriving, yes, and with not a drop of irrigation either.
