Somewhere along the line, a 'Kuro Delight' started showing signs of viral variegation: yellow spotting on the leaves and occasional white blotches on the flowers.  Subsequent clones of the plant proved stable and 'Kuro Delight Variegated' was born!

About 'Kuro Delight':
This plant has the darkest red flowers of any of the cold hardy Camellias. Semi-double, maroon red flowers open mid-season against long, narrow leaves (reminiscent of those on a peach tree). 'Kuro Delight' has slow, spreading growth when potted, but quickly grows in a more upright fashion once planted in the ground.
