A pretty pale pink flower with a white edge. Makes a compact shrub with deep green glossy leaves. The pale flowers can end up looking like polka-dots on an elephant.

The International Camellia register says:

" A seedling of Mrs F.L. Gibson, planted 1944 and grown by Mrs A.B. Sheffield, Thomasville, Georgia, USA. A most unstable camellia with a great number of sports, many often sporting on to other forms. "
