    I’d love to see it in bloom. Hope you get an opportunity to capture a photograph.

    Macoboy, ILLUSTRATED ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CAMELLIAS has a slightly different, perhaps somewhat incorrect version:
    “This awkward name means ‘from the far side of Noko’, Noko Shan being one of Taiwan’s higher mountains.”
    After that he merely describes how to tell it from C. nokoensis. There is a photo showing four open flowers.

    trans does translate to “across” or “through”. I can’t recall what (or if) would be the way to say “from the far side of” in Latin.

    The touch of pink on the buds is very appropriate for February, and the deep pink at the base of the blooms make the flowers look even more alluring. Very pretty!
    The Photo-of-the-Day is a particularly nice feature of this site.

    looks almost like a rhondendron of type….

    I understand it is not easily propagated. I wonder if it would be a plant to try with micropropagation. It is one of my favourites too.

    I was just at the Portland Classical Chinese Garden on New Years Eve and they have one in the northwestern part of the garden. The buds were just starting to swell and were not as far along as the ones in this photo. I should like to add it to my collection at some point. Camellia Forest Nursery of North Carolina lists it as being hardy into Zone 7. It is a nice landscape plant and the spots of color on the outer petals certainly raise one’s interest. I wonder what the purpose of these spots are. Do they act as some sort of nectar glides?
    Anyone in Oregon who has an interest in the genus Camellia is welcome to check out the Oregon Camellia Society. Our website is:
    As for Ms. Mead, you would think one would know one’s own photographs, but then again, it may have simply been someone spoofing her as a joke. In any case, they have lots and lots of wonderful Camellia photos at PBase that I will be scrolling throughout a bit more after posting here.

    Do you know where I can source this in the Lower Mainland or Vancouver Island?
