A couple years ago I went to Nuccio’s and Tom Nuccio gave me a scion of a rare Camellia sasanqua ‘Panaché de Gaujacq’, This is only one of four striped sasanquas I ever saw: ‘Stars’N’Stripes’ from Nuccio’s, ‘Autumn Carnival’ from Camellia Forest Nursery, ‘Panaché de Gaujacq’ and my own seedling Yuri Panchul #YP0108. Such varigation is caused by genetical mutations, unlike virus-induced variegation of blotched sasanquas. Today I got the first bloom of ‘Panaché de Gaujacq’ in my garden. Enjoy!
