Camellia japonica 'April Tryst'
An upright plant with a medium growth rate forms a nicely shaped plant with bright red, medium sized anemone-form flowers. It has a heavy bud-set and blooms over a long season from mid to late Spring. In many varieties, dense clusters of petaloids in the center of the flower are easily damaged by cold before the flower opens, however this clone opens flowers of good quality even after periods of very cold weather.
