Camella sasanqua 'Susy Dirr' Camellia edithae 'Hei Mu-dan' = 'Jinqu' = 'Dongnan Shancha' Camellia edithae 'Hei Mu-dan' = 'Jinqu'  = 'Dongnan Shancha'
NEW ‘Susy Dirr’ (zone 7) – This has a large bright pink formal double flower on a vigorous shrub. The bloom starts early in
the season and the plant should reach 10-12’ tall and 6-8' wide quite rapidly. This plant honors the indomitable spirit shown by
the daughter of Bonnie and Dr. Michael Dirr. PPAF
2 year old plant = 1 gallon pot.
‘Hei Mu-dan'='Jinqu’=‘Dongnan Shancha’. This one keeps on our nomenclature toes - but it's too beautiful to resist, regardless of the name! This Chinese cultivar has an exceptional bloom as well as beautiful foliage. The formal double rose-red flowers are produced in late spring (the end of March through April) and are quite heat tolerant. The dark glossy leaves have deeply indented veins and make the plant handsome all year long. The form of the plant is also excellent with compact and upright growth. I have found this to perform better with some shade.

The candy-stripe flowers make this a unique plant for several reasons. The flowers are mostly white with a few deep pink streaks which makes it special; occasional branch sports will result in various color patterns such as half deep pink and half white flowers. The medium sized, formal double flowers are produced in profusion over a long season from mid to late season. The habit of the plant is upright and very vigorous. At first young plants will grow rapidly and after a few years they fill in very nicely. A five foot specimen in New Jersey has bloomed well for several years.

This outstanding cold hardy variety has pale-pink formal double flowers very late in the season. The medium sized flowers usually open from early to late April here in NC. Almost as nice as the flowers is the very shiny narrow foliage. The plant has a slow growth rate with a tendency to form many branches so that the shrub develops into a upright rounded shape without pruning. This plant has a plant patent and has been released by several large nurseries.

Selected as a branch sport off the wonderful 'Nuccio's Cameo'.  The formal double pink flowers bloom mid season.  The upright growth habit features stunning foliage with beautiful white-yellow margins, which brighten and fade in different seasons. 3 year old plant.

This ancient cultivar has blooms like peppermint candy—fine red stripes on a white background. The formal double flowers are of medium size and open early to mid season. Often the flowers revert to the solid “red” flower and thus becomes ‘Brilliant’. This has relatively slow growth but is upright and quite dense.

NEW, CF ‘Optical Illusion’ (zone 9) – Selected from the same batch of seeds as ‘Solstice’, this yellow flowered Camellia
has long, strap-like petals that can be arranged in a somewhat spiral pattern, similar to ‘October Affair’. The creamy yellow
flowers are formal double with pink overtones. The striking flower makes this worthwhile for a cool greenhouse or in a mild
climate such as Florida or California. The plant will take some freezing but flower buds are quite tender. A strong plant with
thin light green leaves.

A selection from the Snow Camellias which are native to northern Japan and grow in high snowfall regions. Snow Camellias, Camellia japonica ssp rusticana are distinguished by having hairy petioles.
