Ame-no-shita Different reading for ‘Amegashita’ as a synonym for Amagashita.

Haruzaki-amagashita Tuyama, 1968, Camellias of Japan, pl.278, p.175 as ‘Haru-zaki-ama-ga-shita’. This is a renaming of the old Amagashita as “Spring Flowering Amagashita” to distinguish it from another cultivar named Akizaki-amagashita or “Autumn Flowering Amagashita”. However it must be regarded as a synonym as Amagashita has priority.
