» English Description

Wylam, 1957, American Camellia Yearbook, p.27: A vividly variegated form of Guilio Nuccio secured last season by Nuccio’s Nurseries by grafting. The white variegation is sharp and clear. Originated by Nuccio’s Nurseries, Altadena, California, USA. As this variegated form is virus induced it is not stable and a number of names given to special forms have been reduced to synonyms, i.e. ‘Guilio Nuccio Special’, ‘Guilio Nuccio Supreme’, ‘Guilio Nuccio McVey’s Strain’. See colour photo, front cover, SCCS, 1979, The Camellia Review, vol.40, No.5 and on the front page ACS, 1965, The Camellia Journal, vol.21, No.1. Chinese synonym: ‘Wuban Daniuxiao’, later changed to ‘Fuse Da Niuxi’ao’.
