» English Description

River View Nursery Catalogue, 1947-1948, p.10; Thompson, 1953, American Camellia Yearbook, p.79: While this unusual white single has only 6 petals, their arrangement is striking there are three petals in the bottom row and three on the top and they overlap like shin­gles. The petals are wide and crinkled and there is a large, stamen cluster in the centre. The flower opens with a faint blush and later becomes pure white. The plant has a pyramidal growth habit and blooms midseason. A seedling of Kamo-honnami, erroneously as ‘Ama­bilis’, raised by Harvey Short, Ramona, California, USA.
