4 Champion Camellias

 Camellia japonica 'Elegans Champagne'
This was awarded  Grand Champion at the Camellia Show this weekend. It is an anemone form of ivory petals with a centre of champagne. This is a big bloom so I imagine the bush would have to be dis-budded to allow room for the flowers to open properly.

 Camellia japonica 'Kurrajong'
This is the Champion Australian raised cultivar. A magnificent bloom of the waterlily type which is as close to perfect in form as you can get.
Camellia japonica 'Winters Own Variegated'
This one is the Reserve Champion and shows a beautiful arrangement of fluted petals.

Camellia japonica 'Desire'
This is a formal double type and was awarded the Betty McGovern Memorial Award

  1. Ian,

    These are all very lovely! New names for me, but I have seen flowers that like these except for the pink one.
