It is very free flowering, being clothed with single flowers which are Neyron Rose when fully open but deeper in bud. Of vig­orous growth it promises to be an excellent garden camellia and is a credit to the raiser, Mrs G. Preston, Haywards Heath, Sussex, England. The flower consists of 8 petals, HCC.623/2, (RHS.CC. 55C) when fully open, measures 8.5 cm across. Stamens in a centre cluster.
