Camellia chrysanthoides
Our Price: $15.00

This species from southern Guangxi has bright yellow flowers about 1.5 inches across and is easy to grow with good resistance to dieback disease. Spring bloom. The foliage emerges with a strong burgundy red color and the large leaves have strongly impressed veins. Some seedlings survived outdoors last year with a low temperature of 13F. (Zone 8b)

1 year old seedling = 1 quart pot. Most years our outdoor plants set an impressive crop of fruits. The brown fruits are massive and are the size of oranges and most seeds germinate. The pale yellow flowers are 1-2 inches across and appear in the fall. The foliage is large and distinctive with a glossy light green-grayish cast. The wild distribution ranges from southwestern Zhejiang province into western Fujian province. Hardy to USDA Zone 7A

Curiously this hybrid from Nuccio's has a pale yellow color while neither parent has yellow flowers and the formal double flowers on a first generation hybrid are also unusual.  The pale yellow, miniature, formal double flowers appear over a long season starting in March and in profusion.  The seed parent was C. kissi  which is a small flowered and small leafed species.  This plants grows well with smallish light green leaves. 

This plant flowered heavily for us this spring, and we took and informal survey of our customers - aside from loving the sweet little flower, they all agreed the flower had a scent reminiscent of butter mints.  Limited Availability

1 year old plant = 2 qt pot.
In an effort to create a yellow Camellia my dad, Clifford Parks crossed C. flava with C. japonica and thought this seedling is worth introducing. The rose form double flowers are medium sized with light yellow petals. Compared with C. japonica the plant has narrower lighter green leaves with a long leaf tip. The growth is upright and very vigorous and makes an attractive plant. Other seedlings of this parentage do not show much tolerance of temperatures below 15F. These hybrids do not appear to be fertile so work has begun on doubling chromosomes to work towards a hardy deeper yellow Camellia.
