Longer sunnier days bring on the flowers in the cool house: Camellia lutchuensis

It was advertised as being fragrant and it is, a piquant floral fragrance not like anything I'm familiar with. The flower is simple but the perfume is complex. I've been waiting for it to bloom since we picked it up last May from Dr. Ackerman, and it was worth the wait. This is another one I'll propagate in small quantities before we try it out in a sheltered location.
