Camellia hybrid 'Julia Mackintosh'
Sasanqua Camellia, 'Julia Mackintosh'
This seedling selection of Camellia sasanqua which occurred here at Woodlanders was selected and propagated by George Mitchell and named for the late Julia Mackintosh who with her husband Robert founded Woodlanders. It is probably a seedling of 'Leslie Ann', one of our favorites. Flowers buds are reddish-pink when closed, opening to reveal a white, ruffley doubled interior while maintaining a reddish basal cup that fades to pink toward the white interior of the flower.
USDA Hardiness Zone 8-9
