Description

» English Description

Satomi, 1956, Camellia Varieties of Japan, p.12: A white sport of Wakanoura. Large, semi-double, white. Mid-season blooming. The synonyms ‘Waka-no-ura White’ and ‘White Wakanoura’ erroneously apply to the white sport of Ezo-nishiki as the name Wakanoura has been confused with Tricolor (‘Ezo-nishiki’) in America. Therefore the application of the name Leucantha as a synonym for Shiro-wakanoura is erroneous.
