» English Description

American Camellia Yearbook, 1972, p.128, Reg. No.1179: An 8 year old hybrid cross, C.japonica. Elizabeth Boardman x C.hybrid Tiny Princess, that first bloomed in 1968, originated by Mrs M.J. Witman, Macon, Georgia, USA. Plant growth is dense and rapid in rate with dark, dull green leaves, 5 cm long by 2.5 cm wide. The amenone form bloom is white, tinged with blush pink as the petal tips, with yellow anthers and white filaments. It measure 7.5 cm across by 4 cm deep and blooms mid-season. The flower resembles a daffodil as it opens, with a narrow trumpet of petals and stamens, topped by petaloids, surrounded by a corolla of wavy petals, recurved outwards. In Growing Your Favourite Plants, Readers Digest, 1991, p.136, this is erroneously described as a C. x williamsii.
