Camellia 'China Clay'
12th April 2018
Raised by Gillian Carlyon at Tregrehan and first listed in their nursery catalogue for 1973.
The American Camellia Yearbrook for 1976 says:
"Amongst her next batch of seedlings resulting from a cross between C.x williamsii 'J.C. Williams' and C.japonica 'Marjorie Magnificent', a pure white, semi-double camellia emerged.
As one of the local resources is China Clay, the name stuck."
