3rd April 2014

A spectacular reticulata hybrid, C. granthamiana x C. reticulata 'Buddha'. Part of my current enthusiasm for hybrids close to the species, even when they don't look simple or "natural".

The International Camellia register says:

"A very large, rich, orchid pink semi-double with irregular petals, C.hybrid, a cross between C.reticulata Buddha, and C.granthamiana; originated by Nuccio's Nurseries, Altadena, California, USA. The 16 year old seedling first flowered 1962."
