Description

» English Description

Tanigachi, 1912, Chinka Kyōkan as ‘Kyō-nishiki’; Hiratsuka, 1964, Higo Camellia, p.35 & 13 (English); Encyclopedia of Camellias in Colour, vol.I, pl.137, p.81, description, p.311: Flower white, striped and splashed crimson, 9-10 cm across, 6 petals; stamens, 130-150, yellowish; leaves medium size, ovate with short acuminate apex. See Seibundō Shinkōsha, 1979, Senchinshū, p.124, colour photo, Tuyama, 1968, Camellias of Japan, pl.335, p.169; Yokoyama & Kirino, 1989, Nihon no Chinka, p.287. As ‘Kyō-nishiki’ was a name already given to an earlier C.japonica and also a C.x vernalis, in this case the name has been prefixed with “Higo” to distinguish the Higo cultivar. Higo-kyō-nishiki is now considered the valid name. Mutations: ‘Asahi-no-minato’, ‘Mikuni-no-homare’, ‘Jitsugetsusei’. Origi­nated in Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan.
