» English Description

Dr. Hubert Linthe (C.japonica higo-type) Reg. No. 156.  International Camellia Journal 2021, No.53, p.25. Seedling of C.japonica Higo‘Ōkan’ and unknown pollen parent.  Originated in 2007 by camellia nurseryman Peter Fischer, of Wingst, Germany; first flowered in 2015.  Named by Higo camellia specialist Dr. Georg Ziemes, of Düsseldorf, Germany, in honor of the German physician Dr. Hubert Linthe, a long-standing member of the ICS and passionate camellia enthusiast.  Introduced by Savioli F.IIi. azienda Florovivaistica nursery in Verbania Pallanza, Italy. The plant is bushy and open,  growing at a medium rate.  The cultivar has round, green flower buds.  These open over a long mid-season period as single Higo-type blooms, with white base color and crimson streaks ranging from narrow to broad, like some of the “brocade” Higo camellias.  Yellow stamens are in a ume-jin higo arrangement; filaments are white.  Flowers are similar to ‘Yamato-nishiki’ but with a smaller center relative to the size of the flower, which is 9-10 cm wide. Spent blooms fall whole.  The flat leaves are lustrous dark green on both sides, with an average 9 cm long and 6 cm wide. For naming story by Dr. Georg Ziemes, please read:  International Camellia Journal 2021, No.53, p.39-41.
