Yume Camellia.  Some list this plant as a Camellia sasanqua, which it is not. It is a hybrid between C. x hiemalis 'Shishi Gashira' x C. yuhsienensis, a cross made by Dr. K. Hagiya. It is most intriguing with its combination of white and pink petals, which sometimes alternate, but not always. The flowers are single and give off one of the best fragrances of any Camellia that we grow. It acquires this fragrance from its parent C. yuhsienensis, a species  which we grow which is noted for its fragrance. I am not sure of the ultimate size of this plant, but ours tend to grow more like a medium spreading Sasanqua. I have seen reports of it taking temperatures below 0° F for short periods of time. The flowers will begin to open in October and continue to March which is a much longer blooming period than C. sasanqua and one of the longest flowering period of any Camellia. The cross was made in Japan and the cultivar name 'Yume' means "dream" in Japanese. Now that I have grown C. yuhsienensis, I can see from where it gets its long flowering period, as this species flowers for us from November well into January.
