Published in International Camellia Journal 2017, p.122. European Reg. No. 123. 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.
