Camellia 'Blissful Dawn'

From time to time something irresistible crosses my path, and here is the latest. I'm not sure what the appeal is , something about the shading and the depth of colour. I paid too much for a rather gawky young plant, but it has grown well, and I haven't regretted it for a moment.
A hybrid raised by Os Blumhardt in 1982 between C. reticulata and C. 'Donation' with large flowers and the ugly young growth of all the "reticulata" babies. Quite wonderful.
