  • Yuri hello
    I am looking for C. ‘Yuletide’, and found your site via GOOGLE. I had one for 20 + years until I killed it by putting it outside too early when I had to go away for a few weeks two years ago. Though I purchased it here -near Phialdelphia- I cannot locate one at a the local nursery. From your web site it looks like you maybe able to help me.

  • Jane:

    If you cannot find Yuletide at your local nursery, you can order it from one of mail-order nurseries, for example
    Look to the right side of the main page ( ) for the list of nurseries.

  • Like yourself, I am also interested in Higo Camellia and Sasanqua. I am looking for the following to purchase or trade. Cant seem to find these in Nuccios or Cam Forest.

    Higo Sasanqua:
    Sakura Tsukiyo
    Izumi no Aki
    Momozono (not Momozono Nishiki)

    Higo Japonicas:
    Yamato Nishiki

    I have the following to trade:
    Higo Tsubaki Kobai (already 6-9″ tall)
    Higo Sasanqua ONishiki (will have to make starts if wanted)
    ‘Wild’ red yabutsubaki from Yatsushiro area of Kumamoto

  • Hello Yuri.

    Nice page.
    Here i found what i was looking for;
    information about compatibility and chromosomes
    and wonderful pictures of Camellia flowers, especially Camellia kissii.

    Greetings from cold and wet Hannover, Lower Saxony, Germany,
    Camellia border land

  • Hello Yuri!
    I am with Charlotte Taste Magazine in Charlotte, NC. I am writing a story on Camellia Sasanquas and I would like to use some of your beautiful photos if possible. I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you for your time and consideration


  • Tabitha:

    Sure, just tell me which pictures would you like to use. I can also give you some additional information about the cultivars. You can send me e-mail to

  • Greetings!
    First of all, congradulations for the website.
    I’m an university student (last year) of Genetics and Biotechnology in Portugal, and I’m doing molecular analysis of a small population of Camellia sasanqua. Unfortunately, there are no great scientific articles in this subject with this specie. So I ask you if you know some or if you know some website where I can search about the genetic part of this plant. It would help me a lot.

    Thanks a lot, and sorry if I waste your time.
    Best wishes

    Dear Rui Pacheco:

    I e-mailed you some references. Sorry, it took too long – I was unusually busy for the last three weeks, including attending American Camellia Conference here in California.

  • Hello Yuri-
    I just heard about your website and took a look–very nice! I liked the Chinese book information as well as much of the other information.
    I wanted to add a couple of edit suggestions for the ‘About the site’ page:
    1) ‘sasanqua is called “cha-mai” ‘: change ‘mai’ to ‘mei’
    2) you have the correct character for ‘mei’ displayed; however, this is the character for ‘plum’, not ‘pretty’ (another, very common, character also romanized ‘mei’ means ‘pretty). So a gloss would be ‘tea-plum’.

    Thank you, Mark, I will check with some Chinese friends and update the website

  • Interesting page Thank you.

  • Our son died in 1991 and at that time we received a camellia called
    Conrad Camellia, as a gift. His name was Conrad. The plant died and I would love to have another. It was a beautiful white blossom. Does anyone have a source on this plant?
