» English Description

JCS, 1985, Tsubaki, No.24: Colour photo back page: Large white single of 7 fluted petals and a central column of yellow anthers with white filaments joined for their lower third. Fishtail leaves, some with second round leaf pendant at end of main rib. Yokoyama & Kirino, 1989, Nihon no Chinka, p.54, colour photo and description: Medium size, white, wide campanulate single, with 5-6 wide, reflexed, overlapping petals with ruffled margins and a broad, central stamen column, with lemon coloured filaments, joined for the lower third, and yellow anthers. Late blooming. Leaves dark green, obolanceolate, apices rounded, margins serrate. “Bonten” is one of Buddha’s names. In this case it alludes to the form of a small leaf from the main leaf apex. Some leaves are two tiered, with this small leaf extending from the apex of the mother leaf, which is the extreme form of the ‘Kingyoba’ or fish tailed camellias. Originated in the Tokyo area, Japan. Parentage unknown, named and released by Uichirō Noda in 1985.
