Taylor's Perfection Camellia. If you really want a great landscape Camellia, this is it. When it flowers in mid to late winter with its medium pink, semi-double blooms with yellow stamens, it will stop traffic. This hybrid originated in New Zealand in 1975 and is a seedling from the Camellia x williamsii group and it has narrow slightly twisted leaves on long pendulous branches. It is a very fast grower, but whether it is due to its hybrid linage or not, it will tolerate quite a bit of sun. One would never plant this selection for "show" quality flowers, but it is unexcelled for flower quantity with its gaudy display.
