Description: 

Glossy dark green leaves with a yellow green center. Blooms in late winter, pink single flowers with yellow anthers. Slightly more cold hardy than Camellia japonica. Bushy, upright form.

History: 

Found among several plants labelled 'Mary Christian' at the RHS gardens at Wisley, Uk. Since Mary Christian is not variegated, it was renamed.

My Experience: 

I purchased a 1-gallon plant at Woodlanders in Oct 2011 and planted it in the Camellias And More garden. It did very little for a while but finally had a small growth spurt in summer to autumn 2013.
