Day 13 — Daikagura

My High Hat Camellia, a lovely, light pink peony form, is a sport of Daikagura, a camellia developed in Japan in the 19th century. Many years ago, my plant started returning to its roots, so to speak. About half the plant now exhibits deep rose and white Daikagura flowers instead of the light pink High Hats. This is not one of its better years, but the plant currently has about half High Hat and half Daikagura flowers. I think I prefer the Daikaguras.
