» English Description

New Zealand Camellia Bulletin, 1985, vol.XIV, No.4, p.39, Reg. No.232: Originated by J.C. Lesnie, Manukau, New Zealand. A hand pollinated C.japonica seedling of Erin Farmer x Bea Rogers. It is a rapid grower with a spreading, open habit and dark green leaves. The flowers are formal double, 10 cm across x 4.5 cm deep with about 86 petals with incurved tips, giving a flat face to the flower. The colour is pale pink outside and white in the centre when first open, but the centre deepens after to be darker than the outer petals. Blooms early to late. Because of Royal protocol it has been found that this name is not aceptable in the United King­dom where the commercial synonym, ‘Diana’s Charm’ has been approved. Chinese synonym: ‘Dianna Wuanghou’, spelling later changed to ‘Daianna Wanghou’..
