Camellia japonica 'April Remembered'
This vigorous, upright grower with spreading branches has large, cream to pink shaded, semi-double flowers. The bud set is substantial and the flowers are produced over a long period from early to late season. This selection is slightly larger in all respects and much hardier than its mother, 'Bernice Boddy'. A Camellia Forest Introduction, 1993.
