There are very few "yellow" Camellia hybrids available. The yellow flowered species are a little troublesome to grow and I don't think there are any
satisfactory hybrids yet, so the best we have are some C.japonica forms, where the yellow of the stamens is carried through onto the petaloids
in the middle of the flower. This one, and 'Jury's Yellow' are the best currently available.
I have grown this one several times, and it is possibly the unluckiest plant I have. I fell over on one (dead), I felled a tree on one (dead) and I
neglected to protect one overnight when I planted it, and rabbits chewed it to the ground (dead). So this is my fourth try....
