» English Description

Sewell, 1956, American Camellia Yearbook, p.52: “The best seedling I have been able to develop has been named Edgewood. Its flower closely resembles a solid pink ‘Herme’ (Hikarugenji), even to having some perfume though it grows more like its seed parent Rever­ent John G. Drayton.” However, in 1986, Sewell registered an apparently different seedling as Edgewood; American Camellia Yearbook, 1968, p.129, Reg. No.1007: An 8 year old chance seedling of Lady Mary Cromartie that first bloowed in 1963; originated by John and Stella Sewell, Jacksonville, Florida, USA. The semi-double flower in 12.5 cm across and 6 cm deep with numerous petals. Soft rose-pink, (Near Neyron Rose 623/1) with yellow anthers and nearly white filaments. Blooms mid-season.
