Bervenn (C. japonica). European Reg. No. 123. Published in International Camellia Journal 2017, p.122.  Sport of C.japonica ‘Clarissa’ (Mrs Hume Turnbull), first observed in 2000. Grown by Jacques Roué, of Berven-Plouzévédé, France; introduced by the Société Bretonne du Camellia, Saint Goazec, France. Growth is moderate, upright, spreading. The floriferous blooming season is early spring, February-March, and of average duration. Flowers are cup-shaped semi-double, with petals which are wavy at the tips. The medium-sized blooms are pink to coral pink, veined red; petal ends are rounded with undulations. Under protection, the flowers-normally about 9-10 cm in diameter - are much larger. Spent flowers fall whole. Stamens are tubular, with gold-yellow anthers and white filaments. Buds are pink, lanceolate. Leaves are light green, curled; average 9 cm in length and 5 cm in width. Bervenn is the name of the place where the variety has been sown.
