Curly. (C.sasanqua). New Zealand Camellia Bulletin, March 2007, No.156, p.88, Reg. No 475. Registered by N. Haydon, Takanini, New Zealand. A chance seedling that first flowered in 2000. The plant is dense, low and spreading and of medium to slow growth rate. Dark green leaves are 6.5 cm x 2.5 cm and somewhat curled particularly from end to end. The lightly scented flower is of semi-double form, 7 cm wide by 2.5 cm deep, with about 11 rich pink (RHS.CC. 74C) petals, yellow anthers and cream filaments. Flowers early to mid-season. The distinguishing feature of this cultivar is a zigzag habit of branching which gives the plant its low spreading form, and combined with the curled leaves, giving an unusual “crunched up” appearance.
