Camellia 'Scented Sun'
17th April 2011
In recent years breeders have been searching for ways of introducing scent to the big hybrid camellias.
Scented species have been added to the mix and plants are being bred with plenty of staminodes
in the centre of the flower (which seems to be where the scent is produced most strongly).
So far the results have been ugly and faintly smelly.
