» English Description

Tregrehan Camellia Nursery, 1973: Small size, single, pink; floriferous. Vigorous, upright growth. (‘Rosa Simplex’ x C.cuspidata) Gallagher, 1976, American Camellia Yearbook, p.121: “Two seeds from Miss Carlyon’s first series of crosses are interesting. The first was C.japonica ‘Rosa Simplex’ x C.cuspidata. One has been named Cornish Spring. The flowers favour C.cuspidata being small singles, but they are bright pink in colour. Covered head to foot in their pink blossoms, they make a wonderful addition to the garden. The flowers are followed by the very bronze foliage typical of C.cuspidata. Originated by Miss Gillian Carlyon, Tregrehan, Par, Cornwall, United Kingdom. Received a RHS, “Award of Merit” in 1986. Flowers up to 4 cm in diameter, clear, soft pink veined slightly deeper. Anthers brownish, golden yellow.” See colour pl. p.66, Fischer, 1986, Kamellien.
