‘Ohkan’ is a Higo camellia that mutated from ‘Yamato Nishiki’. It grows slowly in a compact manner making a good foreground landscape plant that also adapts to bonsai. Photo by Bradford King.
‘April Remembered’ is a cross made by Dr. Clifford Parks between ‘Bernice Boddy’ and ‘Dr. Tinsley’. It has a beautiful cold hardy bloom. Photo by Bradford King.
Dr. Clifford Parks bred C. reticulata hybrid ‘LASCA Beauty’ when he was a botanist at the Los Angeles State and County Arboretum and named it using the first letter of each word in the arboretum’s name. Since it is a beautiful flower, he added “Beauty”. This widely grown C. reticulata hybrid bloom was awarded the Aubrey Harris Hybrid Award in 1978.
