A confused variety, but the modern plant is an excellent sturdy garden cultivar with large flowers. In 1954 the scientific committee of the RHS came to the conclusion
that it was exactly the same as 'Straffan'. The modern plants are quite distinct, so something has changed in the last half century.
I bought it in 2006 and in the five years it has been planted in the woods it has bulked up steadily
and now makes a cheery little clump. The identity of the variety remains open to question
but my plant is a tidy upright grower with rounded outer segments and the pedicels extend
just above the tips of the spathe and then curve abruptly downwards.
Good old Brenda...whoever she was!
Establishing well under the Camellias though it still looks as though I have planted it out in little clumps.
Perhaps that is not unreasonable, that is what happened.
