冬月 Dongyue 中国茶花品种登录第59号。《中国花卉园艺》2010年,第16期。由南宁培育,黄连冬命名。‘冬月’以金花茶为母本,以紫红香茶梅为父本,得到子一代(F1),再用金花茶的花粉进行回交得到子二代,并从中选育出该品种。叶深绿,卵形,长6-10cm,宽3~6.5cm,先端急尖,边缘锯齿细而疏。花芽淡黄色,牡丹型,淡黄色,花较小,直径约2.5cm,花瓣5~6轮排列,外面3轮花瓣较平展,内轮花瓣较小,扭曲,并稍紧密排列于中心,散生几枚淡黄色的雄蕊,单朵花可持续7~10天,花期12月~翌年2月。该品种是回归杂交育种的后代。2004年11月获得杂交种子,2009年1月第一次开花。从其特征看,有明显的杂种特征,花虽然较小,但比较整齐,淡黄色花在山茶属品种中尚稀少,卵形叶。特异性明显,可用扦插和嫁接繁殖,为较稀罕的品种。
