I bought this on sight a few years ago in a garden centre. Small red single flowers in time for Christmas. It has grown slowly into a small shrub. It catches the wind, and occasionally the snow, and I haven't had a solitary flower from it since it went in.

A form of C. x vernalis (japonica x sasanqua) that arose as a chance seedling on Nuccio's Nurseries, blooming in 1959. It has now started to flower more reliably, but I think that the bud filled plants we see in the garden centres in the middle of winter have been imported from warmer and sunnier climes than mine!
