Kyō-nishiki (Kyōto Brocade), Minagawa, 1949, Chinkashū; Encyclopedia of Camellias in Colour, vol.I, 1972, p.363. Single, campanulate flowers of medium size. Purple red stripes and small spots on white ground, or dark red. Stamens like a tea whisk. Flowers mid-season. Leaves are yellowish green. Originated by Minagawa, Jisuke, Kantō, Japan. The Higo and vernalis camellias of the same name are different cultivars. To avoid confusion the names Kantō-­kyōnishiki and Higo-kyōnishiki are now used and the name Kyō-nishiki is reserved for the vernalis cultivar. Seibundō Shinkōsha, 1979, Senchinshū, p.40 and Yokoyama & Kirino, 1989, Nihon no Chinka, p.259 both list this camellia as ‘Kantō-kyōnishiki’. According to Andoh, this is a seedling of Kokinran.
