Hi Ranjini and all,
Good Pics. I had seen these during our Shillong visit in March this year at various places. I am posting the one we saw at the experimental botanical park,Shillong for comparison. An interesting fact is the number of variable species of C.japonica and variable colours from white to shades of pink to red. Some of the C. japonica are named as C. japonica 'Lady Vansittart' (white and pink), C japonica 'Apple blossom' (very light pink), C.japonica 'Adophe Audusson'(orange red), C.japonica 'Extravaganza' (dark orange red), C. japonica 'Purity' (white with tinge of yellow), C.japonica 'Cinderalla' (red pink).
