Bought from Trehane camellia nursery January 1999 as a young plant, has quickly grown to a compact, shapely shrub. The flowers are anemone form, the centre being about 50 cream coloured petaloids, the whole having a soft yellow look. Flowers are medium size, and show well on the plant.
Growth is upright and dense, foliage a light green, quite large leaves which are not as thick as many, having a slightly wavy appearance. It flowers quite early, continues for several weeks. The only disadvantage of the 'yellows' is the flowers need removing when dying to keep the shrub looking good. zone 8a UK
