Area 2A – Notes

Several very large plants in this area were pruned hard in 2016 and have not flowered this year (2017).

‘Admiral Spry’, ‘Mrs Delacquer’s Beauty’ and ‘Salicus Robe’ are not in the Camellia Register’, so I have no description for them.

‘Candidissima Pink’ (2A-009) appears to be wrong. ‘Candidissima’ is described as pure white and there is no reference to a pink form. The name ‘Candidissima Pink’ was used for a pale pink single in one nursery catalogue, according to the register.

‘Citation’ (2A-015) is the priority name for ‘Delia Williams’, which was what this was labelled. It was relabelled in 2019.

There is no ‘Jamie Anderson’ (2A-029) in the Camellia Register but there is a ‘Janie Anderson’, described as medium sized, pink semi-double. It is a williamsii hybrid.

‘Imbricata Alba’ (2A-028) was cut back hard in 2016 and it is only now, in 2019, that it has become clear that this name is wrong. It would appear to be simply ‘Imbricata’.

‘Juno’ (2A-033 & 2A-034) is a synonym for ‘Jupiter’ (Paul). These two plants appear identical to ‘Jupiter’ (4A-026) but slightly different from ‘Jupiter’ (1G-052).

‘Lady Loch’ (2A-035) is a sport of ‘Aspasia Macarthur’ and should be salmon pink, bordered white. This is clearly something else.

‘Lady Vansittart Lanarth’ (2A-036) is a synonym for ‘Lady Vansittart’.

‘Lady Vansittart’ (2A-041) was relabelled from ‘Migali’ in 2019.

‘Nagasaki’ (2A-042) is a synonym for ‘Mikenjaku’, which originated in Japan.

‘Preston Rose’ (2A-054) never recovered from pruning in 2016 and is dead (2018)

‘Salicus Robe’ (2A-062) died in a strimming accident summer 2018.

‘Thompsonii’ (2A-060), ‘Thomponii’ on its label, ‘Trombonii’ on the map. It seems unlikely that this is the same as the plant of the same name at 4A-042 but which is correct, if either, I don’t know.
