» English Description

Craig, 1972, American Camellia Yearbook, p.52, with black and white photo: The ‘Kujaku’, or “Peacock” camellias are double forms of Yuriba or “Lily Leaf”. Their origin is obscure, and all those presently grown can be traced back to the city of Mikawa in the Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The largest specimen in Mikawa is over 80 years old and seedlings exhibit all forms from the single Yuriba to the dou­ble Kujaku. This cultivar is the semi-weeping form of Kujaku and carries lily shaped, red, semi-double flowers with long strap-like petals; the leaves being linear or very narrowly-elliptic.
