Comments: Has a beautiful, variegated flower on a slow growing plant. Color breaking of the flower is in most cases caused by a virus infection of the plant. It, and may other varieties, can not stand prolonged drought or wet feet. Camellia foliage is often infested with scale insects, especially plants that are growing under stress.
