A camellia named Desire!

Lovely pink water lily type camellia japonica called Desire. I love the way the petals open with so many layers, and the delicate shading of the pink from dark to warm white in the centre. It grows well in the garden but the flowers can be spoiled by the frost. The leaves were just catching the last of the light too, although it is slightly burning the back petals.
