Yü & Bartholomew, 1980, American Camellia Yearbook, p.16: Spinel pink. Early. Tengchong. Feng et al. 1981, Yunnan Shancha Hua, p.43 and 1986, Yunnan Camellias of China, p.39 with colour photo: Leaves oblong, apices acuminate, dark green above, blades slightly arched, 6.5-10 cm long by 2.2-4.7 cm wide. Flowers spinel pink (RHS.CC.62B), diameter 6-9 cm. Petals more than 10, flat. Stamens numerous, around pistil to form a ring. Pistils mostly rudimentary. Flowers mid-season. The cultivar was selected from an open pollinated plant of C.reticulata Lindl. f. simplex Sealy in Tengchong. The flowers of this cultivar are rather small, but 3-4 flowers can be produced at the branch terminals so the cultivar is rather impressive. Different reading: ‘Ts’ai Yu’.
