» English Description

Kanaoka, 1959, Tsubaki no Nashi; Tuyama, 1968, Camellias of Japan, pl.181, p.142: Branches erect, leaves elliptical, base rounded, slightly acuminate. Petioles hairy. Flowers semi-double, rose red (Spinel red 0023), petals obovate, rounded and deeply incised at the apex, margins locally, sharply serrate, especially on inner areas. According to Mr. Katayama this cultivar was once known as ‘Kamiyo-tsubaki’. See also p.39, Seibundō Shinkōsha, 1979, Senchinshū, and Yokoyama & Kirino, 1989, Nihon no Chinka, p.311, as ‘Kansai-aki-no-yama’. Originated in Kansai District, Japan. This seems similar to the Camellia listed by the Chūgai Nursery 1934-1935, and distributed by McIlhenny in the USA from 1937 as Aki-no-yama.
