» English Description
SCCS., 1950, The Camellia. Its Culture and Nomenclature, p.31: Blush peach pink. Large semi-double to anemone form. Vigorous, upright growth. Blooms mid-season to late. Originated by S.J. Katz, Covington, Louisiana, USA. Orthographic variants: ‘Dave Strother’, ‘D.C. Strother’. An early blooming, light pink, single camellia had been given this name by Magnolia Gardens about 1942 without Mr Strother’s permission. On his objection it was renamed Evening Star and Mr Strother’s name transferred to the camellia originated by Mr. Katz.
