Camellia 'Donckelaeri'

18th April 2014

An old Japanese cultivar introduced to Europe by Siebold in 1829 following his first visit. There is a certain amount of confusion about the exact identity of the cultivar, and the correct name might be 'Masayoshi', however this is the cultivar as it is grown in the UK.
It was one of the first cultivars I planted in the garden and it is now a large bush, but somehow I have failed to take any adequate photographs until recently.
