I'm looking for a cammellia with a red bloom, and either a rose form, or a formal double form. I have the names of a few varieties, but was wondering if anyone has seen them in person...

Emperor of Russia
Grandiflora Rosea
Price Eugene Napoleon
Rosehill Red

Did I miss any that I should be considering?

How about Big Red. I've never seen it, but Forest Farm (Oregon) describes it in their catalog:

HUGE! (4-5") intensely red!, loose fully double flowers on a background of glossy drk-grn foliage make this upright 8-12' shrub a real showcase late winter into spring.

A variety not listed but worth considering is Tom Knudson. The flower is a cherry red in color.

barley, I have pictures of mine in my photos. I don't know the name but I have one that looks like a huge, red rose and one that looks like a carnation.

Wonder if they can be rooted?
