Camellia 'Tricolor'

Archive entry 22.01.12

I have both of these forms as 'Tricolor', and they are obviously not the same. I like the bloodshot excess of this limp, rather world weary form. I was once taught Latin by a schoolmaster with the same demeanour who had retreated from preppy enthusiasm into a land of whisky and sarcasm.

This is the one with the preppy enthusiasm (fancy)! Dulce et decorum est ... (so get on with it). Bring on the whisky.

I have two distinct plants labelled 'Tricolor' in the garden. The first is a simple, almost single flower and I think it is probably the true owner of the name. I also have this precise double flowered plant which I think may be the original clone of 'Lady Vansittart'.
