Camellia japonica 'Les Marbury'
'Les Marbury' is very special plant for many reasons! Formal double flowers stand out with particularly pointed petals and striking red, white and pink stripes and specks. Dense, dark green leaves provide incredible contrast for the bright flowers. Introduced in 1991 by Dr. J. M. Habel, Jr. of Suffolk, VA. The jumping gene that creates the striped pattern is rather unstable for 'Les Marbury'; with time, you can expect to see solid red blooms.
