The new williamsii hybrid, ‘Jennifer Trehane’ has a stunning full peony- form pink flower with a subtle white edging and is very free flowering. Its upright, compact shape makes it an ideal garden plant.
Tested for garden worthiness at Dorset’s Trehane Nursery for the last seventeen years, this plant is a sport of the pure white camellia, ‘Jill Totty’, first discovered and propagated at Trehane’s back in 1975. It is hardy, flowers in abundance from mid to late spring and will be available for the first time at the RHS London Plant and design Show on the 19th and 20th February 2013.
This new camellia was named after the current owner’s mother in recognition of her many decades working to popularise camellia around the world. Jennifer Trehane has commented on the new plant named in her honour "I am very flattered to have this lovely variety named after me. I hope it becomes a feature of many English gardens"
Trehane’s 2013 catalogue includes four new camellia varieties plus their extensive range of other plants including Blueberries. The nursery is situated at Hampreston near Wimborne in Dorset.
