» English Description

Stowe, 1951, American Camellia Yearbook, p.280: “Mr & Mrs G.J. Slack, Pen­sacola, Florida, USA are proud of their seedling Chief Slack, which is a white, incomplete dou­ble with a few golden stamens in the centre of the bloom. One side of the flower has a few bright red streaks and blotches. The centre petals are smaller than the outer petals and stand up more. The flower measures 10 cm across by 6 cm deep. The plant is a medium-fast grower and blooms mid-season”. See black and white photo, pp.288-289 same Yearbook.
