JCS., 1987, Japan Camellia, No.24, p.4, colour photo: Originated by Makino, Kōroku, Toyama Prefecture, Japan, by grafting the wild snow camellia Kiridani onto ‘Tachikan-tsubaki’, (Kanjirō) which has a white variegating virus which gives a beautiful cloud quality of an individual nature. Wild snow camellias are difficult to variegate, but using the variegated ‘Tachikan-tsubaki’ this can be facilitated.
