    Thought it was something like Camellia Adolphe Audusson at first but then I noticed the flowers have white sploshes on them so Camellia Masayoshi?

    The white blotches look like rain/frost damage of the petals to me :)

    Just don't be tempted to plant one where the morning sun will catch it. The buds tend to fall off when the sun melts early morning frost

    There are several pink/white flowered Camelias, have a look on google images, type in pink and white flower Camelia.

    If you wanted a fragrant variety, look at C. Sasanqua.

    Aah, thank you for the feedback guys..i was able find this at our local garden centre...the big blown species are around 300 quid...but understandable with all the effort it takes :( 



     i found smaller ones as well but wonder how long they would take and would they turn into these big ones too? They cost about 30 quid so much more cheaper...
