Notes:

I discovered this gorgeous flowering plant in Pulaski Square in Savannah. The bush was huge — maybe 15 ft. tall or more. I didn’t notice that it was fragrant. I’m from Michigan and have never seen anything quite so beautiful! What is it and can I grow it in my Metro Atlanta backyard?

    Is it a camellia? The closest I have found to this beauty is E.G. Waterhouse:. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eben_Gowrie_Waterhouse
