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."
