Found on large bushes in eastern NC. Would like to know the name. Very even deep red with no ruffles. Also quite large blooms.

    Yes, it is a camellia of course. But what is the name of it? Is it a Royal Velvet or is it an Adeyaka?

    It is a Camellia japonica.

    A beautiful deep red one… Check out the American Camellia Society photo gallery. You can post your photo for the experts to possibly id it.
